Cake: The Marie Antoinette Playlist
This brand-new musical, come gig, come ballet, is from some of the most exciting figures in modern British Theatre.
Combining 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.
Originally commissioned by Paul Taylor-Mills (Heathers & In the Heights), Cake: The Marie Antionette Playlist has an award-winning creative team including Olivier winners Drew McOnie (In the Heights; Jesus Chris Superstar) and Morgan Lloyd Malcolm (Emilia - The Globe). It promises to re-define our expectations of what a musical can be.
