In Jon Robin Baitz's OTHER DESERT CITIES, Brooke Wyeth (Elizabeth Marvel) returns home to Palm Springs after a six year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents (Stockard Channing and Stacy Keach), her brother (Thomas Sadoski), and her aunt (Judith Light). 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 had its premiere at LCT last winter where it played to sold-out houses during its limited engagement run at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater. It was named Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play by the Outer Critics Circle. The Broadway production is again directed by Joe Mantello, fresh from the stage of The Normal Heart.
