Tony Award nominee Ann Crumb takes on the role of acerbic aunt Silda Grauman in the Walnut Street Theatre production of Jon Robin Baitz's acclaimed family drama Other Desert Cities, which begins Jan. 14 in Philadelphia.
Staged by Kate Galvin, the Walnut Street production will officially open Jan. 22. Performances continue through March 2 in Philadelphia.
The Broadway hit, which was Tony-nominated for Best Play, centers on a wealthy Republican family whose Palm Springs holiday celebration is derailed when their liberal daughter arrives with her new memoir that seeks to unveil a painful secret.
Crumb has appeared on Broadway in Aspects of Love, Anna Karenina, Les Misérables and Chess. She frequently appears on the Philadelphia-area stage.
The cast of Other Desert Cities also features Susan Wilder and Greg Wood as Polly and Lyman Wyeth, respectively, with Krista Apple and Matteo Scammell, as their grown children, Brook and Trip.
Other Desert Cities has scenic design by Todd Edward Ivins, lighting design by Thom Weaver, costume design by Colleen Grady and sound design by Christopher Colucci.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
