What may be the region’s most historic theater, part of the Byrdcliffe Colony in Woodstock, kicks off its new lease on life in reconditioned (and air-conditioned) form with performances of the politicized family drama Other Desert Cities, all about what happens as a proposed family memoir hits dark family secrets and partisanship wrapped in lasting hurt and remorse. A Performing Arts of Woodstock production, it promises seriousness in a setting that has played, previously, to great operas, musical creations and even the early works of some sterling theatrical talents of the 20th century. It opens on June 12 and runs on June 13, 14, 19, 20 and 21, with Friday and Saturday performances at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinées at 5 p.m., with tickets costing $20, or $15 for students and seniors.
