As scorching as the Mojave sun, Other Desert Cities is a family drama that sears the memory and melts the heart. Christmas is always somewhat surreal in Palm Springs. It's made even more so this year when Brooke returns home after a long absence to present her conservative parents with a tell-all confessional novel that exposes a pivotal event in their family history. Now, old wounds are reopened, childhood memories are tested and the Wyeth clan learns that some secrets can't stay buried forever. Sean Critchfield directs this widely-praised new work by Pulitzer Prize finalist Jon Robin Baitz (A Fair Country) at the Las Vegas Little Theatre. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
Prelude to a Kiss is titled after a torch song by Duke Ellington. In 1992, a film was made based on the play, starring Meg Ryan and Alec Baldwin.
Immediately after a young couple named Peter and Rita have exchanged wedding vows, an unknown elderly man asks to kiss the bride. As he does, Rita’s soul and the old man’s magically exchange bodies. Neither Peter nor the wedding guests grasp what has happened. Peter leaves the wedding with a woman he believes is Rita. During their honeymoon, he comes to realize that Rita’s body is no longer inhabited by Rita’s true personality. He must find the old man, and keep his love for Rita alive… despite the fact that she is now in an unattractive body.
