GAINESVILLE – The Hippodrome’s 40th Anniversary season opens with one of Broadway’s most acclaimed productions of recent years, the Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony award-winning “Other Desert Cities” by Jon Robin Baitz. In a carefully manicured world of power and privilege, her story will rock one Hollywood family to its core.
Meet the Wyeths. A family that appears to have it all - wealth, political influence, and A-list connections. They are "living the dream" in Palm Springs, California. But their carefully crafted facade is on the verge of shattering when daughter Brooke reveals the impending publication of her "tell-all" memoir.
“Other Desert Cities,” is a richly satisfying exploration of the faultlines that exist between privacy, artistic expression, explosive family secrets, and the truth. This fast-paced production brings together an unforgettable cast of characters, razor-sharp wit, and a jaw-dropping plot twist. With crackling wit, razor-sharp one-liners, a fierce cast of characters, and a storyline that grabs you and won’t let go - “Other Desert Cities” is a "must-see" way to kick off the Hipp’s 40th Anniversary Season.
