Perez Reviews: Other Desert Cities

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesPerez Reviews

We are soooooo thankful we expanded our horizons and ventured out of our comfort zone of seeing just musicals during our current NYC trip!

Plays can be just as entertaining!!!!

We are STILL absorbing everything from Other Desert Cities on Friday night.

The show was so pleasurable and rewarding to watch! It was emotionally draining and invigorating at the same time!

Like Death Of A Salesman it examines the complexities of families and the dynamics between relatives. But, being a new play, it obviously feels much more current and relevant. It felt like a beautiful episode of Brothers & Sisters, which makes sense because during intermission we read in the Playbill that Jon Robin Baitz, who wrote the show, also created Brothers & Sisters.

The play is poignant but funny! It's understanding on "understanding" is inspired!

We've been thinking a lot lately about several of the themes brought up in the show! We truly were meant to see it!

It is engaging throughout and beautifully acted by Stockard Channing, Stacy Keach, Judith Light, Elizabeth Marvel and Matthew Risch, who was a revelation and a surprise. He was soooooo good! We had only seen him in Pal Joey before and we did not like him in that nor did we like that production, which - like Other Desert Cities, was directed by Joe Mantello.

Congrats to Mantello on the superb job with Cities, though!

Must MUST see theater!

We wish we had taken Momma Perez to it!

    Wasnt it Fleet week last week when the space shuttle flew in atop the jumbo jet? Well, I am sure Perez can use the Fleet enemas instead of the actual soldiers. He has his slick ways. Artsy theatres….his ass. More like sticky floor theaters.

    You should probably mention that Judith Light has replaced Linda Lavin if your going to show that video!

    Old clip. Linda Lavin left the show months ago. She's now up for another Tony Award for "The Lyons."
