Other Desert Cities on Broadway: Show Times and Tickets
Running since October 2011
Stockard Channing and Stacy Keach play the matriarch and patriarch of a conservative American family facing its complex past in a drama the NY Times called "the most richly enjoyable new play in many a season."
Closes June 17th.

The Broadway production of Other Desert Cities closed June 17, 2012. For current Broadway show listings and tickets, please click here.

According to press notes, the play deals with a once-promising novelist who "returns home to Palm Springs after a six year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents, her brother, and her aunt, and 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."

"Other Desert Cities" was very well-received when it opened at Lincoln Center Theater's Off-Broadway venue early in 2011, and Tony-winner Stockard Channing received raves for her portrayal of a Reaganite Republican in denial. Joining Ms. Channing in the Broadway production are Stacy Keach and Matthew Risch as father and son, Drama Desk nominee Elizabeth Marvel as the young writer, and Tony-winner Judith Light as the acerbic, alcoholic aunt.

Joe Mantello, the Tony-winning director of "Wicked," directed the Broadway production, as he did Off-Broadway. Here is a video montage from the Off-Broadway production:

What's Lincoln Center Theater? One of the largest and most prominent non-profit theaters in the city, LCT has two state-of-the-art venues at Lincoln Center, and occasionally produces shows in the theater district proper. On rare occasions the fare is controversial, but as a matter of course, it's the best-regarded theatrical producing organization in the city. More here.
