I had this crazy idea to produce a play and its sequel back to back this fall: Reasons To Be Pretty and Reasons To Be Happy by Neil LaBute. And then I found out that LaBute was writing the third in the series: Reasons To Be Pretty Happy (see what he did with the title there?). And THEN I found out that he was doing a reading of the play in New York the SAME weekend as my friends' performance. So I booked a ticket to New York to see both. The reading was tonight starring Paul Rudd, Amber Tamblyn, Jennifer Mudge, and Norbert Leo Butz and it was fabulous. My director Jeff Meek and I attended the afterparty at Ramsacle where we had a rooftop view of the light shone in honor of 9/11. What a night!
