OVERVIEW
By Jon Robin Baitz | Directed by Joe Mantello

THE MOST RICHLY ENJOYABLE NEW PLAY IN MANY A SEASON! OTHER DESERT CITIES is seriously satisfying and gorgeously acted. 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, New York Times
