SOLD OUT: The Cake, Directed by Lynne Meadow ’68, Manhattan Theatre Club, Tuesday, March 26, 7:00 PM


We have reserved a block of tickets on March 26 for The Cake, written by Bekah Brunstetter (This is Us) and directed by Bryn Mawr alumna (and MTC Artistic Director) Lynne Meadow ’68. Following the performance, the play’s Lynne Meadow will host a talkback with Bryn Mawr alums.

All is going well for Della (Debra Jo Rupp, “That 70s Show,” “This Is Us”). 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 ’68.
