What the LOS ANGELES TIMES and OC TRIBUNE are saying about Cassidy's performances portraying the lead role of Brooke Wyeth

in the L.A. area production of the Tony Award nominated drama

OTHER DESERT CITIES

From the LOS ANGELES TIMES:

"Cassidy McMillan, simply brilliant as the determined author whose steely demeanor sets the circuitous plot in motion."    

-Los Angeles Times

"Her inner vulnerability is well camouflaged until the play's most crucial moment."

- Los Angeles Times

"Brooke Wyeth,[Cassidy McMillan], a fragile but determined young woman

a few years out of rehab, is the writer whose philosophical differences

with mom and dad couldn't be more pronounced."

-Los Angeles Times

"'Other Desert Cities' overflows with tension and conflict,

while packing a powerful punch in its climax."

-Los Angeles Times

"(Cassidy) McMillan’s Brooke starts off tentatively, nervous and subdued,

as if still contending with the ghost of her depression, as well as dreading her family’s reaction to her memoir: but as the story progresses, and

we begin to see just how important to her continued existence that this novel is,

 

the candle flame that is Brooke’s restrained emotion begins to

ignite into a bonfire of determination and self-preservation."

-OC Tribune

"The Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize nominated play revolves around Brooke Wyeth (Cassidy McMillan) and her uncomfortable Christmas Eve visit to her privileged family

in Palm Springs, California in 2004.  

The Wyeths are a showbiz family, in the fullest sense of the word."

-Thom deMartino, OC Tribune

"This is Brooke's first visit back to the West Coast in six years, having stayed back east for treatment for depression after her divorce. But while Brooke has made her living writing magazine articles during that time, she’s now completed her manuscript for a new novel —

a memoir, which includes details about her late brother Henry’s suicide,

and the events leading up to it — which may split the family asunder, irrevocably."

-OC Tribune

"Henry’s suicide is something that the family — save for Brooke — simply will not discuss, leaving a gaping emotional wound that members of the clan simply choose to ignore, rather than contend with the pain that dealing with it will engender."

-OC Tribune

"Brooke is reluctantly willing to let her relationship with her wounded and angry parents wither and die, as she sees the memoir as the only way she can get closure over Henry and go on with her life: but there are yet more secrets, darker still, to come to light at this gathering…"

-Thom deMartino, OC Tribune
