Ahead of celebrating the official opening of its latest Off-Broadway production, Bekah Brunstetter's The Cake, Manhattan Theatre Club offers a sneak peek at the new comedy. Take a look at the production, starring Debra Jo Rupp and now playing at New York City Center, in the video above.
The Off-Broadway premiere of The Cake, directed by MTC's artistic director Lynne Meadow, opens March 5.
In the new comedy, a North Carolina baker is forced to re-examine her deeply held beliefs when her late best friend’s daughter asks her to make a cake for her lesbian wedding. Rupp, who is reprising the role of Della from previous productions, is joined Off-Broadway by Marinda Anderson (Teenage Dick, Far From Heaven), Genevieve Angelson (Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, The Upside), and Dan Daily (The Rivals, Seabiscuit).
