Jonathan Cake Plays Daddy

PlayBlog   Jonathan Cake Plays Daddy
Jonathan Cake, a beefcake Brit with RSC training, arrived on Broadway seven years ago this week playing Jason to Fiona Shaw's Medea and has worked steadily in American television and theatre ever since (Lincoln Center's Cymbeline, Atlantic Theatre Company's Almost an Evening, et al) — but he has been M.I.A. since The Philanthropist last season. So what is he working on?

"I'm working on dirty diapers and making tasty but nutritious dinners for my children while my wife has left me for the theatre," he says.

The diapers in question belong to two-year-old Ignatius and seven-month-old Phoebe.

His wife, whom he met guesting on "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," is American actress Julianne Nicholson, and she can be found playing a troubled mom at Playwrights Horizons' Mainstage Theater these days in This, the well-received new play by Obie-winning Melissa James Gibson.
