A respectable follow-up to LaBute's masterpiece
I do think that Neil LaBute will be remembered most for his masterpiece "Reasons to Be Happy" which debuted off-Broadway and eventually landed on Broadway to much acclaim (with a small segment dissenting, the usual sneering). This sequel is totally respectable, and shouldn't be faulted for more of a good thing. I saw Jenna Fischer perform the lead role in the world premiere MCC Theater production, and she's no less memorable in this "radio play" version (though I'll always prefer LaBute regular Fred Weller in the original starring role).
It seems likely that LaBute got falsely "#MeToo"-ed when MCC suddenly dropped the third play in this intended trilogy, "Reasons to Be Pretty Happy," without explanation (or apology). I hope that LATW sees it through to its proper debut.
