MCC Severs Ties With Playwright-in-Residence Neil LaBute
The Off-Broadway company has also canceled its upcoming production of Reasons to be Pretty Happy.
MCC Theater canceled the upcoming production of probably misogynist as hell play Reasons to be Pretty Happy by giant creepo Neil LaBute and is terminating his tenure as its playwright-in-residence, effective immediately. Gee I wonder why. Representatives for the company declined to comment further because they know the article's about to drop.
MCC has produced a number of LaBute’s plays and has collaborated with the playwright for more than 15 years. The company has worked with LaBute on Fat Pig, The Mercy Seat, The Distance from Here, Reasons to be Pretty and i mean if those titles don't tell you everything you need to know, and the 2016 solo play, All The Ways To Say I Love You, starring two-time Tony winner Judith Light who should know better smh.
The world premiere of LaBute’s Reasons To Be Pretty Happy, directed by Leigh Silverman was set to close out the 2017–2018 season. Aw, poor dat. In his newest play, the playwright revisits the characters first introduced in Reasons to be Pretty and Reasons To Be Happy because he's probably totally out of ideas.
