Cake

A Parisian dance gig in one act. 

Cake combines rap and RnB with 18th century France to retell a story that sparked a revolution. When Marie Antoinette married King Louis, her reputation was already tarnished by gossip. But when she is implicated in a crime to defraud the crown jewellers of a diamond necklace, it is not just her reputation at stake, but the monarchy and France itself.

This brand-new musical, come gig, come ballet is from some of the most exciting figures in modern British Theatre. Including Olivier Winner’s Drew McOnie (In the Heights & Jesus Chris Superstar) and Morgan Lloyd Malcolm (Emilia – The Globe)

Cake was originally commissioned by Paul Taylor-Mills (Heathers & In the Heights) and promises to re-define our expectations of what a musical can be.

Book – Morgan Lloyd Malcolm
Music and Lyrics – Tasha Taylor Johnson & Jack McManus
Direction and Choreography – Drew McOnie
Based on an idea by Paul Taylor Mills
