Other Desert Cities Broadway Play
August 21—September 15, 2013
Experience a Broadway play in the San Francisco Bay at Palo Alto’s Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts. Co-produced with The Old Globe, San Diego, “Other Desert Cities,” was originally written by Jon Robin Baitz, a Los Angeles native. Baitz has written for major TV shows, including “The West Wing” and “Alias”, leading to his role as creator and executive producer of the Emmy award-winning sitcom “Brothers and Sisters”. Now making its way to the stage in Palo Alto, “Other Desert Cities” garnered popular praise and critical attention during its Broadway run last year.
With juicy secrets and surprising family history, this Broadway play delivers on both the drama and the laughs. Intended for a more mature audience, California locals may recognize the play’s title as a reference to the state’s famous Interstate 10 sign pointing toward the Coachella Valley. Set in Palm Springs, the plot unfolds as a somewhat dysfunctional family reunites for Christmas. With hilarious situations juxtaposed with some macabre undertones, audiences will be following the storyline to the finish.
With laud reviews from the New York Times, this Broadway play has gained momentum as it has moved into other city’s markets. If you plan to visit Palo Alto this autumn, plan a fun evening of performing arts entertainment at a lively local theater. With the venue’s state-of-the-art technology and world-class cast of regional actors, you won’t find a bad seat in the house. Best of all, this Mountain View venue is conveniently located near our hotel, so you can make the most out of your visit to Palo Alto. Catch this Tony award-nominated play in person while you have the chance!
