Cake is the true story of an on stage disaster presented from five different perspectives. In November 2015 Chocolate City Burlesque and Cabaret Producer, Chè Monique, planned to celebrate her birthday, audience members’ birthdays and Chocolate City Burlesque and Cabaret’s first anniversary by doing a burlesque routine featuring her jumping out of a cake during the Black Friday! show. Chè weighs over 300 pounds, so this was to be no small cake. It ended up being on an eight foot square platform. As is often the case with ambitious plans everything that could go wrong did, ultimately causing the show to run late, several troupe members to quit and a lot of confusion. Cake will be presented in the form of monologues with two burlesque performances
