CUPCAKE

Monday / April 4, 2016 / 9:00 p.m.
Red Room at Cafe 939
939 Boylston Street
Boston
Massachusetts
United States
02115

CUPCAKE is a flirty love letter to Summertown, a free-spirited seaside resort where every mouth waters for Tom and his irresistible cupcakes. But rookie officer Stone, looking hot in his spotless uniform, is on the prowl: the law clearly states that street sales of food are taboo. The locals, especially the hunky Lifeguard and the sexy, nerdy Librarian, relish Tom’s contraband cupcakes and help their adored baker boy avoid arrest. Meanwhile the ruthless Real Estate Agent (who bears a remarkable resemblance to the Tourist, the Judge, and the Captain of the Women’s Softball Team) intends to seal her own sweet deal. If anyone is going to get their hunger satisfied, they’d better hurry: this is Summertown, and the short, short season is almost at an end.

This musical is directed by Ana Guigui. Music is by Michael Wartofsky, a professor in the Harmony Department, and lyrics are by David Reiffel. The book is written by Reiffel and Bradley Seeman.
