Founded in 2009 by Francesca Day and Marta Kuersten, Cake Productions opened the curtain on its inaugural production, Modern Dance for Beginners by Sarah Phelps at the Cherry Lane Studio. Following this debut endeavor, the company doubled in size to include Brooke Berry and Sarah Brill. The quartet then went on to produce Psych by Evan Smith and Speaking in Tongues by Andrew Bovell on the Fourth Arts Block in the East Village, as well as Swimming in the Shallows by Adam Bock at The West 52nd Street Theatre. In the fall of 2011, the company expanded to include four additional company members. Cake Productions is currently launching production on the world premiere of In the Company of Jane Doe by Tiffany Antone at New York Theatre Workshop’s 4th Street Theatre, set to open in May 2012.
This female-founded theatre company produces Off-Off-Broadway pieces that are culturally significant to modern, urban audiences. Winner of the 2010 NY Innovative Theatre Award for Outstanding Featured Actor (Amir Darvish) and nominated for Outstanding Costume Design (Brooke Berry and Mark Mears), Cake Productions is geared towards commercially appealing, thought-provoking, edgy plays. In addition to creating opportunities for women as performers, administrators and designers, Cake focuses heavily on production values and presents their work in welcoming, accessible venues. The company also produces readings of potential new or adapted material for future mainstage productions and offers practical educational workshops for theater students and professionals.
