"The most richly enjoyable new play for grown-ups that New York has known in many a season.
Seriously satisfying. As directed by Joe Mantello, who does his most sensitive work in years here, every character is created equal -- every one of them emerges as selfish, loving, cruel, compassionate, irritating, charming and just possibly heroic in Mr, Baitz's most fully realized play to date." - Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“Why is it that children are allowed a sort of endless series of free passes in this life, you know, and we’re expected to be the parents of children forever?”
- Polly Wyeth in Other Desert Cities by Jon Robin Baitz
It’s Christmas Eve in Palm Springs when Brooke Wyeth unleashes a most unwelcome gift on her family: the galleys of a tell-all confessional novel painting her Reagan-adjacent parents in a less-than-flattering light.
Jon Robin Baitz turbo charges the family dynamic with repartee that dazzles and decimates, relationships that rock between love and hate and a devastating secret (or three) that made Other Desert Cities one of the hottest tickets of last year’s New York theatre season.
"A winner! Funny, fierce and immensely entertaining."
- Joe Dziemianowicz, New York Daily News
