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.

The Office of Faculty Development is proud to announce the debut of Every When at Once, a Space Opera presented by Loudon Stearns, Associate Director of Contemporary Writing and Production, and 2014 recipient of the Newbury Comics Faculty Fellowship.

What is a space opera? The term space opera implies science fiction, or something of a dramatic nature that takes place in outer space. Every When At Once is the story of Rae, a man who lives forever to find a woman, Cirque on the other end of space and time. This all-original show features performers, crew, and composers from the Berklee College of Music and Emerson communities.   


Loudon Stearns

A recent graduate of the Media Arts MFA program at Emerson College, Loudon is bringing to life his science fiction love story through music, dance, and technology. Combining his media arts degree with his background in technology, Loudon is producing a show in a format that is new territory. This story will be told from three different locations, simultaneously—the Martin i Soler Theater in Valencia, Spain, Emerson College's Los Angeles campus, and the Paramount Theater in Boston—all interacting with each other through live streaming.

For those who cannot attend the show in person at one of the three locations, the show will be available worldwide online at everywhenatonce.com

The show is FREE, but please RSVP so that we may hold a space for you. You can RSVP at Everywhenatonce.com. See you at the show!
