We are thinking of you during this increasingly painful time in our world. Thank you for your support of our organization as we seek to embrace a future brighter than ever. That being said, we are listening and learning from our community here in Pittsburgh and beyond, and have decided to postpone this week’s PlayTime presentation of The Cake and its accompanying special ticket holder Q & A event as well as our annual gala.

The gratitude we feel for our Pittsburgh Public Theater family is profound and sincere. This decision was not made lightly, but we know it affects your time and your pocketbook. Thank you for hanging in there with us as we continue to do our very best for our audiences, artists, staff, and community.

Please be assured we will maintain frequent communication as we look towards a future date for The Cake and the gala. If you hold tickets for The Cake or Barefoot in the Park, and have not yet had a chance to make your ticket selections, you may do so via the link below. Should you require immediate assistance, you may reach our Box Office team at or 412.316.1600. They are still working safely and remotely from home, but will make every attempt to respond to your inquiry as soon as possible. We are grateful for their work, and grateful to you for your understanding.

Della lives in Winston, North Carolina where her bakery is filled with delicious treats. When Jen returns to her hometown from New York and announces that she’s planning her wedding, Della can’t wait to make the cake. That is until she finds out that Jen is marrying another woman. Gay and straight, Brooklyn and the Bible Belt, sex and shame are just some of the ingredients vigorously stirred into this funny and incisive new play by Bekah Brunstetter, celebrated writer of TV’s “This is Us.”
