Robert Egan
Robert Egan will now direct the Center Theatre Group production of Jon Robin Baitz's Other Desert Cities at the Mark Taper Forum. He replaces the previously reported Joe Mantello, who is no longer available due to a scheduling conflict.

The production will now also begin one week later than previously announced, performing November 28, 2012 through January 6, 2013, with an opening on December 9.

The play, which received a 2012 Tony Award nomination, tells the story of a once promising novelist who returns home after a six year absence to spend the holidays with her parents, her brother and her aunt. When she announces that she is about to publish a memoir focusing on an explosive chapter in the family's history, the reunion is thrown into turmoil.
