The last time Bill Maher was at the Winspear, he called Sarah Palin the “C” word and the conservative media went ballistic for a week. (We know, because we wrote the review which said he used the “C” word.) We can only hope he does something as provocative again, and he probably will — that’s Maher’s strength as a politicomedian.

Jon Robin Baitz’s Tony-winning ‘Other Desert CIties’ gets regional premiere

His latest play — Other Desert Cities, a Broadway hit that won its star, Judith Light, a Tony Award — gets its Southwestern debut courtesy of Theatre 3.
