From the mind of hit television screenwriter Bekah Brunstetter (This is Us, Switched at Birth) comes The Cake, a play of equal sentimentality and trouble. Main character Della, played by That ’70s Show‘s Debra Jo Rupp, has a knack for cakes, not judgment calls — those usually get sent to her husband. When the girl she helped raise returns to North Carolina with a different fiancee than expected, Della has to decide whether the cake will include two brides atop or not. Taken from the website

GREAT SHOW
Great show! Debra Jo Rupp is an American treasure. Attended this show last week with my wife and brother and his wife. I will admit that it gave a lot to talk about on the ride home. Would have given it five stars, but I found two short scenes to be a bit sleezy. These, I felt were scenes that were unnecessary to the overall theme and they would not have had an impact if they had been omitted. Otherwise .... fantastic show - highly recommend it.

Burners is set in the not-so-distant future where the elite live in luxury inside Avalon Protectorate, a fortified megacity, while the majority of the population struggles to survive in massive, polluted slums. A resistance movement has risen to fight for the rights of the poor, and their most powerful weapons are humans that have been genetically engineered to become living bombs: BURNERS. Taken from the website.

Go see it
I wish more plays were like this. The divide between audience and players completely disappeared. I saw it in a very small theater and the set envelopes much of the seating. The atmosphere of a high tech dystopia was spot on. The set and costume design were excellent but the players really carried the show. An unexpected story and all of the background on their desperate world comes across through their interaction. Both players shed their more stereotyped mannerisms as the complexity and layers of their characters and identities were revealed. Really well done and engrossing. Go see it.

Mary Shelley’s 1818 classic horror novel gets a 21st-century steam punk update in Frankenstein, A New Musical, described as being more faithful to Shelley’s dark and romantic novel than any other version of Frankenstein. Promising scientist Victor Frankenstein plays God by daring to create life — only to turn his back on his monstrous creation, setting off a cycle of violence. The musical captures a tragic love story and a battle between father and son. An exploration of desire, obsession and ambition run rampant, Frankenstein, A New Musicalmakes its Los Angeles debut at the Flight Theater at the Complex. Taken from the website.
