The Cake: I ate up this play and so will you

Last week I wrote a post about Boston Lyric Stage latest production, The Cake, and after seeing the show, I wanted to encourage you to get tickets to see if for yourself, but if you need further reason, read The Boston Globe’s review, Humor and humanity are the icing on The Cake.

The Cake uses humor to address a subject that has been grabbing headlines for years. Despite the fact that we’ve all heard more than we probably care about individuals using religion as an excuse to deny service to LGBTQ community, to watch the drama unfold on stage is more compelling than you might think and thanks to the excellent script and solid cast quite funny to watch as well.

I found it very hard to dislike Della, a traditional Southern baker who has a crisis of conscience when her deceased best friend’s daughter, Jen asks her to make her dream wedding cake for her and her future wife. Della is not unlike many millions of Americans who fail to see the hypocrisy in their selective interpretations of The Bible which on one hand condemn homosexuality and in the next condemn people who eat shellfish, pork, etc…  But her love for Jen (or Jenny as she calls her) compels her to reexamine some of her long held beliefs.

Make plans with a friend or another couple and get tickets before it closes on February 9th. Like me, I’m sure that after you see the show, you’ll never look at a pile of mashed potatoes quite the same way again.

Most of this ginger’s photos are selfies and shirtless photos. He also has a number of photos goofing around with his buddies in Scotland and elsewhere.

This is definitely a mancandy account and for those of you who are fans of gingers – this one is a must follow.

“You can kiss my ass”

Pre-Broadway run for Neil Simon’s Plaza Suite opens in Boston this February

boston theaterMatthew Broderick & Sarah Jessica Parker: Neil Simon’s Plaza Suite

Two-time Tony Award winner, Matthew Broderick, and two-time Emmy Award winner, Sarah Jessica Parker, perform next month in the pre-Broadway engagement at the Emerson Colonial Theater in Boston.

The famous couple have not performed together on stage in more than 20 years but the Neil Simon comedy, Plaza Suite, seems like a great show to bring them together and Boston is lucky enough to get a first glimpse at how their real life chemistry might translate on stage in this hilarious play about love and marriage. Little known fact that was shared in the release says that the Simon play made its world premiere at The Colonial more than fifty years ago in 1968.
