In MTC's new play, when a celebrated baker is asked to make a cake for lesbian wedding, she is forced to re-examine her deeply held beliefs, as questions of morals, judgment, and family swirl around. More…
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 to a woman. Written by Bekah Brunstetter ("This is Us.")
See it if You love cute & small stages. Clever & witty lines from Debra. Her character development & acceptance towards LGBTQ couple at the end.
Don't see it if You dislike inflexible & over the top dramatic character. Please tone Macy down because everyone is entitled to their own opinion & belief.
See it if you enjoy dessert, you want to see something profound, and/or you are a fan of Debra Jo Rupp.
Don't see it if you don't like smaller productions, mentions of religion make you uncomfortable, and/or LGBTQ characters make you uncomfortable.
See it if you want to see a clever, well-balanced play inspired by the infamous wedding cake Supreme Court case. Debra Jo Rupp shines in this role.
Don't see it if you don't enjoy theater that gets preachy or political or deals with LGBTQ issues.
See it if You want to see a great performance by Rupp. The plot is weak and meanders in areas but she really delivers.
Don't see it if You’re not interested in plot themes about lesbians, religion, sexuality... among themes. You don’t like an intimate theater setting.
See it if you want a well acted but basically light handed treatment of a serious issue. This could have been a more in depth play with some guts.
Don't see it if you want to delve more seriously into a controversial subject; prefer musicals and non-controversial dramas; you don't like cake
See it if you'd like a balanced ("both sides deserve respect") treatmt of gay acceptce. Polished script, gd perfs, gr set. Some laughs. Air smells gr.
Don't see it if you want depth. TC is Tolerance Lite. Everyone's likable. Barely argues th intolernce is bigotry (it IS!) Sit-com-y vibe. 2019 deserves more
See it if You Really like the 70’s show she is very good. The sets are pretty well done
Don't see it if You are bored and annoyed by a simplistic dull rendition of gay marriage vs fundamental religious values
See it if u want a light hearted but unadventurous depiction of well trodden themes (gay marriage, the Christian wedding cake debacle). Easy to digest
Don't see it if u expect edgy or clever. The set is fun, the lead is charming. The fiancée is indignant & dull. Not bad. Just didn't satisfy my sweet tooth
See it if You enjoy fluff without looking too deeply for meaning. A couple of good laughs dilute any serious statements about the struggle.
Don't see it if If you consider gay rights as an important issue not a joke by the religious right.
