NEW YORK (AP) - Actual happiness isn't especially prevalent in Neil Labute's new play, "Reasons To Be Happy." But then, LaBute can send his plots in surprising directions, so be prepared for an avalanche of emotions to tumble out onstage.
LaBute directs his intense, funny and touching play, which is a sequel to his favorably reviewed 2008 play "reasons to be pretty." That look at an unraveling relationship also had a brief run on Broadway, receiving three 2009 Tony Award nominations, including best play.
