A new play byJon Robin Baitz
Directed byJoe Mantello

Booth Theatre

In Jon Robin Baitz's OTHER DESERT CITIES, Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs after a six year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents, her brother, and her aunt. Brooke announces that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family's history - a wound they don't want reopened. In effect, she draws a line in the sand and dares them all to cross it.

OTHER DESERT CITIES premiered at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater in 2010, where it played to sold-out houses during its limited engagement run. The Broadway production was again directed by Joe Mantello, fresh from the stage of The Normal Heart.
