Lincoln Center Theatre has indefinitely extended the Broadway run of Jon Robin Baitz's Other Desert Cities at the Booth Theatre. Directed by Joe Mantello, the production was originally scheduled to conclude its run on January 8.
Other Desert Cities centers on the Wyeth family, who have gathered for Christmas at the modernist Palm Springs home of the prominent parents (played by Stockard Channing and Stacy Keach). When troubled daughter Brooke (Rachel Griffiths) announces that she has written a tell-all memoir, past secrets and indiscretions may be revealed. Judith Light and Thomas Sadoski also co-star as Silda Grauman and Trip Wyeth, respectively.
Other Desert Cities made its world premiere at off-Broadway's Mitzi Newhouse Theatre earlier this year. The Broadway transfer has played to packed houses since beginning its run on October 12 and officially opening on November 3, reaching 100% capacity in the past week.
