OTHER DESERT CITIES
Written by Jon Robin Baitz
Hollywood star’s desert estate glows with Christmas cheer. But home for the holidays is daughter Brooke, a novelist whose tell-all memoir is sure to rip the politically divided clan apart. Are we having fun yet? With dazzling wit and razor-sharp insight, this Pulitzer finalist balances fierce comedy and riveting family drama in the blockbuster hit of the 2011 Broadway season.

“The most richly enjoyable new play for grown-ups that New York has known in many seasons…In his most fully realized play to date, Mr. Baitz makes sure our sympathies keep shifting among the members of the wounded family portrayed here. Every one of them emerges as selfish, loving, cruel, compassionate, irritating, charming and just possibly heroic…leaves you feeling both moved and gratifyingly sated.” —NY Times.
“Astutely drawn…juicy and surprising.” —NY Daily News.
“Spending time with these messed-up, complicated people is a genuine pleasure.” —NY Post.
“Power, passion, and superbly crafted palaver stippled with blowdarts of wit—this is what Baitz does best.” —New York Magazine.
