About Two Strangers (Carry a Cake Across New York)

Let them eat cake this spring at the Criterion Theatre! But be alert, this is a very special wedding cake that needs special handling – be careful not to drop it! Book Two Strangers (Carry A Cake Across New York) tickets on London Theatre now.

Following a sold-out run at the Kiln Theatre over Christmas, award-winning songwriting team Jim Barne and Kit Buchan’s show transfers to the West End’s Criterion Theatre. The high society wedding of Dougal’s dad and Robin’s sister comes with great expectations and emotions are running high.

Dougal hasn’t seen his dad in, well, forever, and Robin and her sister have a tricky relationship. Meeting as strangers, odd couple Dougal and Robin embark on an action-packed and soul-searching 36 hours in the city that never sleeps – with plenty of hilarity.

In this two-hander, Olivier Award-winning young star Sam Tutty, who won just about every award going for his performance in Dear Evan Hansen plays lovable Brit-in-New-York Dougal. He’s joined by the equally impressive Dujonna Gift as the streetwise native New Yorker Robin. Gift’s credits include Caroline or Change, Dear Evan Hansen, and Hamilton, and next year she’ll be seen in a featured role in Disney’s live action remake of Snow White.

London Theatre enjoyed the way the show “plays homage to classic romcoms with a platonic twist… it’s sweet and sentimental without being schmaltzy.” And in a five-star review in The Observer, it’s noted that “its charm is in an intelligently calculated magic that does not lose sight of real life in all its bittersweetness and struggle.”

To add to the rom-com vibes, the musical is set during the run-up to Christmas, so enjoy the festive season all over again as spring comes to London. Book Two Strangers (Carry A Cake Across New York) on London Theatre now.
