Baitz's "Other Desert Cities"

Interview

Friday, January 28, 2011

In Jon Robin Baitz's new play, Other Desert Cities, a novelist returns home to her prominent California Republican parents with the manuscript of a new book — a memoir filled with very dirty laundry. Kurt talks to Baitz about how this combination of tension, comedy, and politics has become the playwright's specialty. Baitz created ABC's Brothers and Sisters, about a grown-up family full of smart, strong personalities in crisis.
