The Goodman Theatre has announced casting for its upcoming production of "Other Desert Cities," directed by Jon Robin Baitz. Tracy Michelle Arnold will play Brooke Wyeth (the role originated on Broadway by Rachel Griffiths); the Tony Award-winning Deanna Dunagan ("August: Osage County" at Steppenwolf) will play Polly Wyeth; John Hoogenakker ("The Iceman Cometh) will play Trip Wyeth; Linda Kimbrough will play Silda Grauman; and Chelcie Ross (who played Conrad Hilton on "Mad Men") will play Lyman Wyeth.
The Goodman also said Wednesday that the Wednesday evening performance of "Sweet Bird of Youth" has been canceled due to the illness of star Diane Lane (and, apparently, her understudy). Tickets can be exchanged for other scheduled performances. Lane, who has laryngitis, is expected to be back in the show on Thursday.
