Our friends at Burien Little Theatre want our Readers to know that they’ll be holding auditions for the comedy-drama “reasons to be pretty,” written by Neal LaBute, on Tuesday, Dec. 13 from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. with callbacks Wednesday, Dec. 14.

The characters are two men and two women in their early to mid-20s (see full list below).

“This incendiary comedy-drama involving four friends was an Off-Broadway hit that later moved to Broadway as a Tony-nominated Best Play,” reads a press release. “Greg, who adores his girlfriend Steph, is overheard admitting that she is no beauty. When Steph finds out, all hell breaks loose. Best friends Carly and Kent, who are struggling with their marriage, are there to take sides, provide support and light the match on the powder keg of their relationship. As both relationships crumble, the friends are forced to confront deceit, infidelity and betrayed trust in their journey to answer that oh-so-American question, “How much is ‘pretty’ worth?” Contains liberal but appropriate use of profanity.”

“LaBute has exchanged misanthropy for empathy, reaping unexpected dividends … some of the freshest and most illuminating American dialogue to be heard anywhere.” The New York Times

Performances will be at Burien Little Theatre from April 20 through May 13, 2012. Rehearsals begin in March.

Auditions are Tuesday, Dec. 13 from 7 to 10 p.m.  Callbacks are Wednesday, Dec. 14 from 7 to 10 p.m.
