"Other Desert Cities is a brilliant and remarkable hit from Broadway because it’s a play for grownups,” says Thompson. “Baitz keeps shifting our sympathies as these characters surprise us with each revelation. At the same time as it’s moving, it’s also very funny." Thompson took the reins himself to direct the hit play, which also counts DCTC regulars Kathleen McCall (who understudied for Stockard Channing as Polly Wyeth in the Broadway version) and Lauren Klein (a 2013 Lunt-Fontanne Fellowship recipient) as Brooke Wyeth among its cast members.
