HART stages Tony Award winning drama “Other Desert Cities” beginning January 31

HART’s Winter Studio Season continues with the Tony Award winning drama “Other Desert Cities” beginning January 31, and running potentially through February 9. The show premiered at Lincoln Center in January 2011 staring Stockard Channing and Linda Lavin and Stacey Keach. In November it transferred to Broadway for an extended run. HART is one of the first theatres in North Carolina to produce it. The play was a finalist in 2012 for the Pulitzer Prize.

The title is taken from a road sign that appears on Interstate 10 as you leave Palm Springs, California, identifying other metropolitan areas heading east. The play is set in Palm Springs and concerns the Lyman family gathering at Christmas time. It seems there are old secrets and wounds about to be revealed in a new book written by the daughter, who is home for the first time in six years. The play is witty, and thought provoking, building to an unexpected climax.

HART’s production is being directed by Charles Mills and features Sarah Woodard, Ned Martin, Lyn Donley, Julie Kinter and Steve Lloyd.

Seating in the Feichter Studio is limited and reservations are recommended. The opening show of the season sold out its opening weekend and many without reservations were turned away at the door. To reserve seats call HART at 828 456 6322 or go online to www.harttheatre.com . Performances are at 250 Pigeon St. in Waynesville.
