LaBute premiere: "The Shape of Things" at Bernard Toale Gallery in Boston

Terry Byrne reports in the Boston Globe: "Neil LaBute's drama 'The Shape of Things' explores often misguided assumptions about both art and relationships. For the newly launched Spontaneous Theater Project, the play's setting in an art gallery became an opportunity. Performances will take place in the Bernard Toale Gallery in the South End Aug. 23-Sept 1. 'When you're working on a play that asks questions about what is art, the decision to perform the show in an art gallery was not only a practical choice, but an aesthetic one as well,' says project member Bobby Kennedy."
