Boston Lyric Stage is a great local theater company located on Clarendon Street on the Back Bay / South End line and later this week they will open with, The Cake, their first production of the calendar year.
Using humor, the play addresses religious-based discrimination and the crisis of conscience some have when it comes to participating or contributing to same sex marriages. The play opens with Della, a traditional Southern baker, who learns she will be cast on her favorite television baking competition just as she is reunited with her deceased best friend’s daughter, Jen. The sparks fly when Della is forced to question her strongly-held beliefs after Jen asks her to make her dream wedding cake for her and her future wife. Della must re-examine her deeply held beliefs, as questions of morals, judgment and family swirl around them all in this heartfelt and deliciously funny play.
The production opens this week on Friday, January 10 and runs through Sunday, February 9. Sergio and I will be checking it out this weekend and I hope you will see it as well. With tickets starting at $25 and special discounts for seniors and students this is a great option and worth checking out.
January 10 – February 9, 2020
