This a brand-new musical, come gig, come ballet is from some of the most exciting figures in modern British Theatre. Cake will be venturing on a UK tour from March 2023, starting at the Mayflower Studios, Southampton. With an Olivier Award winning creative team including Olivier Winner’s Drew McOnie (In the Heights; Jesus Chris Superstar) and Morgan Lloyd Malcolm (Emilia - The Globe).
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.
