This is an EXCEPTIONAL play. Brilliant staging and outstanding actors. We truly had an amazing evening. We had ordered the prix fixe dinner in advance from the Catwalk Cafe and all four of us enjoyed the food and ambiance.

Set and acting very good; lead young actress needs more seasoning, I'm afraid, but did a good job. Play itself is very well written, above the typical play.

Hidden secrets are unearthed and family tensions fly high in Pulitzer Prize nominee Jon Robin Baitz’s contemporary family drama Other Desert Cities, hailed by The New York Times as “the best new play on Broadway” in 2011. Helen Hayes Award winner and former Arena Stage Associate Artistic Director Kyle Donnelly returns to direct the D.C.-area premiere of the show with a cast that features Tony Award nominee and two-time Helen Hayes Award winner Helen Carey (Mary Tyrone in Arena Stage’s Long Day’s Journey Into Night, Broadway’s Hedda Gabler) as matriarch Polly Wyeth and two-time Tony Award nominee Larry Bryggman (Broadway’s Harvey, CBS’s As the World Turns) as patriarch Lyman Wyeth. Rounding out the cast are Emily Donahoe (Broadway’s 33 Variations) as daughter Brooke Wyeth, Scott Drummond (Cherry Lane Theatre’s A Perfect Future) as son Trip Wyeth and Martha Hackett (Pacific Resident Theatre’s Nora) as their Aunt Silda Grauman.
