“The Cake” is Food for the Soul
Food for the soul!” That’s how “New York Theatre Guide” describes The Cake, onstage this month at Elmwood Playhouse. The show does, indeed, provide healthy helpings of laughter, love, and hope.
But there is also cake. Yes, actual cake. After every performance, the celebration continues in the lobby with complimentary cake for the audience.
Coming up on December 2, audiences will enjoy cake provided by Pâtisserie Didier Dumas. Dumas’ Main Street café has been a renowned destination for delicious desserts in Nyack for years, and we are honored to serve his cake to our audiences.
Opening night was also a special treat — with baked goods provided by Glitter Thicket of Nyack. If you missed it, we highly recommend visiting Glitter Thicket on Burd Street in Nyack to sample some of their yummy — and visually delightful — desserts.
Spoiler alert: The show is about so much more than cake. It’s about relationships, principles, confrontation, intimacy, and what we are — and are not – willing to give and take. And while the show raises questions that have no easy answers, it also raises hope that we can find our way together.
So feed your soul—and your sweet-tooth—with The Cake.
Remaining performances are Saturday Nov. 26, Sun. Nov 27, Thu Dec 1, Fri Dec 2, and Saturday Dec 3. Friday and Saturday 8 p.m Sunday at 2 p.m.
Tickets: $27, $24 for students, seniors, and military.
