Watch a trailer
See the show The New York Times has dubbed as "the best new play on Broadway" before anyone else in Colorado.  A family is pushed to the brink in Jon Robin Baitz’s scintillating new drama.  When Brooke Wyeth arrives at her parents’ Palm Springs mansion on Christmas Eve with the manuscript of her tell-all memoir in tow she unearths a devastating family secret—throwing her parents into a panic that threatens to rip the clan apart. With biting wit and razor-sharp insight, Other Desert Cities “has the appeal of a Broadway hit from another age” (The New York Times).
