Provocative theater

Via the NY Times:

Neil LaBute, whose work always makes someone angry, has scored a new high.

In his current show, "reasons to be pretty," a character launches into a long tirade against her boyfriend, telling him everything she thinks is wrong with him.

This past Saturday night (April 4), during this monologue, an audience member got up from his seat, "called her a bitch twice, said a few other things that cannot be printed, and stormed out of the theater.

Security at the show has been increased.
