25 Apr - 29 Apr 2023
Select a performance
A Parisian dance gig in one act.
Cake: The Marie Antoinette PLAYlist combines a multi-genre pop score 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 Christ 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.
Casting will include, fresh from her magical run as Mary Poppins on the West End, Zizi Strallen (she/her)stars as Marie Antoinette, with Renée Lamb (she/her), Catherine of Aragon from the original cast of SIX, starring as Jeanne.
The cast is completed by B Terry (they/them) as Nicole, Travis Ross (he/him) as Cardinal with Ope Sowande (he/him) and Megan Bryony Gibbs (she/her) as the ensemble and Lukas Hunt (he/him) and Amie Hibbert (she/her)as swings.
