MTC Announces New York Premiere of THE CAKE

MTC Announces New York Premiere of THE CAKE

Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) are pleased to announce the 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).

The Cake will begin previews Tuesday, February 12, 2019 prior to a Tuesday, March 5, 2019 opening night at MTC at New York City Center - Stage I (131 West 55th Street).

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 Cake's cast and creative team will be announced at a later date.
