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 officially opens Jan. 22 after previews that began Jan. 14 in Philadelphia.
Staged by Kate Galvin, the Walnut Street production will play 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.
Featuring the Broadway classics “To Life (L’Chaim!),” “If I Were A Rich Man,” “Sunrise Sunset,” “Matchmaker, Matchmaker,” and “Tradition,” Fiddler on the Roof will introduce a new generation to this uplifting celebration that raises its cup to joy! To love! To life!
