Other Desert Cities
It’s Christmas Eve in Palm Springs when Brooke presents her Reagan-adjacent parents with a tell-all confessional novel that turbo-charges the holidays and the Wyeth family dynamic with ever-shifting alliances and politics.
Pulitzer Prize-finalist Jon Robin Baitz’s smart new play of high drama, serious laughter and repartee that dazzles and decimates was one of the hottest tickets on Broadway last season.
Set in the desert playground so familiar to Southern Californians, Other Desert Cities will seem right at home on the Taper stage when former Taper Producing Director Robert Egan (Closer, Arcadia) continues his longtime collaboration with Baitz (in Los Angeles, Film Society and Ten Unknowns).
“Funny, fierce and immensely entertaining.”
- New York Daily News
“The most richly enjoyable new play for grown-ups in many a season.”
- The New York Times
