PHOTO CALL: Avenue Q Set Gets Frosted on "Ace of Cakes"
27 Mar 2008
Avenue Q's set design was recreated in a sweet form on Food Network's "Ace of Cakes."
Cast and crew of the current touring company of the Jeff Marx-Robert Lopez-Jeff Whitty musical comedy were filmed for an episode of the baking competition show in which Chef Duff Goldman unveiled a customized Avenue Q cake. His inspiration was the show's streetscape scenic design by Anna Louizos. The backstage was also sweetly preserved in miniature.
The episode, shot while the road company was at Baltimore's Hippodrome Theatre, will air on the cable network March 27 at 10:30 PM (ET). Check your local listings.
Playbill.com got a sneak look at the iced homage to the stage show's facade:
