Casting announced for Other Desert Cities at Goodman Theatre
Tony Award winner Deanna Dunagan will return to the Goodman Theatre's stage as part of the cast of Other Desert Cities, the theater announced today. Henry Wishcamper directs the Chicago premiere of Jon Robin Baitz's play, a finalist for this year's Pulitzer Prize.
Dunagan will play matriarch Polly Wyeth, with Chelcie Ross as her husband, Lyman. Tracy Michelle Arnold (Chicago Shakespeare's Private Lives and A Midsummer Night's Dream) makes her Goodman debut as daughter Brooke Wyeth, who's penned a tell-all memoir about her upstanding conservative family. John Hoogenakker will portray Trip Wyeth, with Linda Kimbrough as Polly's sardonic liberal sister, Silda Grauman. Other Desert Cities is scheduled to play the Goodman's Albert stage January 12–February 17.
