Manhattan Theatre Club’s


Opens Tomorrow

at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I

Manhattan Theatre Club’s New York premiere of The Cake, written by Bekah Brunstetter (“This Is Us,” “American Gods,” The Oregon Trail) and directed by MTC’s award-winning Artistic Director Lynne Meadow (The Assembled Parties, The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife, The Commons of Pensacola), opens tomorrow at MTC at New York City Center – Stage I (131 West 55th Street).

The cast of The Cake features Marinda Anderson (Teenage Dick, Far From Heaven), Genevieve Angelson (Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, The Upside, “Good Girls Revolt”), Dan Daily (The Rivals, Seabiscuit, The Wolf of Wall Street), and Debra Jo Rupp (“This Is Us,” “That 70s Show,” “Friends”).

All is going well for Della. Her North Carolina bakery is legendary and she’s just been cast on her favorite television baking competition. But then, her late-best-friend’s daughter comes home from New York City to ask her to make a cake for her upcoming wedding. When Della learns that Jen’s about to marry a woman, she is forced to re-examine her deeply held beliefs, as questions of morals, judgment and family swirl around them all. This emotional and deliciously funny play was created by Bekah Brunstetter (“This is Us”), and is staged by MTC Artistic Director Lynne Meadow.

The creative team for The Cake includes John Lee Beatty (scenic design), Tom Broecker (costume design), Philip S. Rosenberg (lighting design), John Gromada (sound design and original music), and Tommy Kurzman (hair, wig & make-up design).
