The new Other Desert Cities Broadway play is getting a lot of attention this fall. Many theater fans are eagerly awaiting the opening night for this critically acclaimed work. Playwright Jon Robin Baitz's story of a Republican family whose secrets and wealth are attempting to be exposed by their daughter who longer believes in the family "ideals." The production had great success off-Broadway, gaining an audience, selling out, praise from critics and taking home the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play. A fitting story to current times and sure to be one of fall's big hits for the Broadway season.
Other Desert Cities Broadway has two things going for it. The play is beautifully written and gorgeously acted throughout. The play relies on dynamics, wit and strong dialogues, which develop amazingly on stage. Brooke Wyeth played by Rachel Griffiths is a one-time hopeful novelist who comes home for the first time in years. Since leaving, she has had a change in views and opinions, ones strongly enforced by her wealthy conservative family. Brooke decides to write a transparent memoir of her life, her family's secrets and the lies which have made them all prosperous. Much to her family's opposition who will be exposed to the world in an unflattering light. Brooke draws a line in the sand and threatens the very secrets which have kept her family rich and in the good graces of society.
Other Desert Cities began off-Broadway as a Lincoln Center production playing at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater. The play enjoyed great success in its limited run with sold-out shows. Critics jumped aboard praising both the writing of Baitz and the skills of the actors. Audiences fell in love with the work and led the way for a fall Broadway transfer. The off-Broadway cast included Elizabeth Marvel as Brooke Wyeth, Stockard Channing as Polly Wyeth, Stacy Keach as Lyman Wyeth, Linda Lavin as Silda Gravman and Thomas Sadoski as Trip Wyeth. Most of the cast will transfer to Broadway except for Rachel Griffiths Broadway debut taking over the role of Brooke Wyeth and Tony nominee (Lombardi) Judith Light playing Silda Gravman. The entire creative team will also transfer to Broadway, including John Lee Beatty (sets), David Zinn (costumes), Kenneth Posner (lighting), Jill BC DuBoff (sound) and Justin Ellington (original music).
Other Desert Cities Broadway is a new play to keep on eye on this fall. The production is sure to garner much attention around it intelligent yet stunning witting and cast.
