Actors’ Playhouse at the Miracle Theatre presents Other Desert Cities

From January 16 through February 10, 2013.

Other Desert Cities is the funny and searing play by Jon Robin Baitz, the creator of TV’s Brothers & Sisters that received universal acclaim in its recent Broadway debut. In Other Desert Cities, Brooke Wyeth, a once promising novelist, returns home after a six year absence to celebrate Christmas in Palm Springs with her parents, former members of the Reagan inner circle, her brother and her aunt.

When Brooke announces she is about to publish a memoir focusing on an explosive chapter in the family’s history, the holiday reunion is thrown into turmoil as the Wyeths struggle to come to terms with their past. Touted as “The Best New Play on Broadway!” by The New York Times, this scintillating drama about a family pushed to the brink balances comedy and intense drama with rich dialogue and finely crafted characters.

Performances take place Wednesday through Saturday at 8:00 p.m., and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. A special weekday matinee is scheduled on Wednesday, January 23, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets for preview nights are $37, weeknights and matinees are $42, and on Friday and Saturday evenings $50. The theatre offers a 10 percent senior discount rate the day of performance and $15 student rush tickets 15 minutes prior to curtain with identification. Discounts are based on availability and exclude Saturday and Sunday.
