    Spontaneous and effervescent actor Lucy Lavely is only 25 years old but she has the life experience of a much older person and it shows in her compelling performance as Brooke Wyeth, a woman who is haunted by her family’s secrets, in the Asolo Repertory Theatre Company’s production of Jon Robin Baitz’s riveting play, Other Desert Cities, which was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Condemned to years of frustration by her undiagnosed dyslexia, her inability to read, Lucy compensated by “being social.” Talented, tenacious, outgoing and brave, she took on every challenge; listen to her tell her unusual story including her struggle to get accepted into the University of Notre Dame, and be part of the family which nurtured he father and uncle.
