Amazing ensemble, captivating script. Awestruck by Pamela Reed's stand-out performance. Don't miss this work of art!

I saw the preview performance, and the cast was already spot on. Acting is outstanding from every member of the cast. The dialogue is full of zingers, so delivery is crucial. The acting made this a very worthwhile experience. I was a little...continued

Excellent, thought-provoking play with sharp humor, good writing and fine performances. I liked the second act reversal that made us rethink what had "really" happened.

Great venue for a play. Size, layout, and staging were all very good. Direction and execution were good. For the most part, the acting was solid (though the older players seemed more comfortable inhabiting their roles). My major criticism would be...continued

Brilliantly written and acted! Not only relevant to current social-political issues, but providing an antidote to the reflexive and simplistic judgments of either side of an issue.
Good for the spirit, mind and very entertaining!

I took a dear friend to see Another Desert City as a birthday gift to her and it was not only a hit as a gift but we both found ourselves fully engaged with the story through the superb acting that brought this play to life! I initially thought...continued

I went to this play primarily to see the luminous Pamela Reed on stage again; also because the article in The Seattle Times made the piece sound intriguing and intelligent. I was not disappointed. Deeply human characters finding their way through...continued

some of the acting feels forced. maybe preview night jitters. That said, Pamela Reed is excellent and worth the ticket price.

This play is not to be missed. Crisp, taut, by turns funny and intense, even at over 2 hours in length it never once lagged. One set, five characters, each portrayed extremely well by a uniformly excellent cast. But the play is the real star...continued

Tickets so easy to buy at a nice discount. The play began sounding like a comedy, but became more of a social statement as the evening progressed. Lori Larsen was terrific. Hurrah, I remember her coming to our "play attendance group" and...continued
