"Smart and engaging throughout"
– CHICAGO TRIBUNE

January 12- February 17, 2013 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around 2 hours and 15 minutes with one intermission

A family is pushed to the brink in Jon Robin Baitz’s scintillating new drama, dubbed “the best new play on Broadway” by The New York Times.

When Brooke Wyeth arrives at her parents’ Palm Springs mansion on Christmas Eve with the manuscript of her tell-all memoir in tow she unearths a devastating family secret—throwing her parents into a panic that threatens to rip the clan apart. With biting wit and razor-sharp insight, Other Desert Cities “has the appeal of a Broadway hit from another age” (The New York Times).
