Manhattan Theatre Club has announced full casting for Bekah Brunstetter's The Cake, starring Debra Jo Rupp.

The Cake is described as follows: "All is going well for Della. Her North Carolina bakery is legendary and she's just been cast on her favorite television baking competition. But then, her late best friend's daughter comes home from New York City to ask her to make a cake for her upcoming wedding. When Della learns that Jen's about to marry a woman, she is forced to reexamine her deeply held beliefs, as questions of morals, judgment, and family swirl around them all."

In this new production, Rupp will reprise the role of Della, which she originated at the Echo Theater in LA, and played at Barrington Stage Company and Geffen Playhouse. She will be joined by Marinda Anderson, Genevieve Angelson, and Dan Daily. Under the direction of Lynne Meadow, the creative team will include John Lee Beatty (scenic design), Tom Broecker (costume design), Philip S. Rosenberg (lighting design), and John Gromada (sound design and original music).

The Cake will begin previews February 12 prior to a March 5 opening night at New York City Center – Stage I.
