Other Desert Cities

Closed March 24, 2013

The best new play on Broadway

Ben Brantley, New York Times

Why See Other Desert Cities?

This winner of the 2012 Drama League Award and Tony Award nominee for Best Play, Other Desert Cities was praised by The New York Times as "the best new play on Broadway" and "funny, fierce and immensely entertaining" by the New York Daily News.


The story follows Brooke Wyeth as she returns home to Palm Springs to celebrate Christmas with her parents, brother and aunt. Announcing that she's going to publish a memoir, a devastating event in the family's history is brought to light, an old wound that they don?t want reopened. Featuring Guthrie favorite Sally Wingert, Other Desert Cities charges the family dynamic with banter that dazzles and destroys, making it one of the most satisfying grown-up plays of the decade.
