The Cake by Bekah Brunstetter opens March 15, 2019, at the Lake Dillon Theatre Company. We sat down with each of the cast members to learn more about their characters and what excites them about the Show. Today we caught up with past LDTC performer Claire Kennedy who will take the role of Jen in The Cake.
What most excites you about coming back to Summit County and the LDTC?
I love the people here. The artistic vision and integrity of the LDTC family and the kind community throughout Summit County…I’m excited to be back with such good people.
What can audiences expect when they come to The Cake?
Audiences can expect to laugh, hopefully, be inspired and moved. They can expect to see multiple sides of important issues, and maybe be opened to new perspectives.
How do you relate with your character?
My character Jen is full of life and energy and she loves her family. I relate to her sense of wanting to give and love all she can. I’m a people person and I always love to learn all I can about everyone I meet.
What is most exciting about being in The Cake?
It’s a wonderful cast and crew, which is always exciting. And I’m excited to share the hearts of these very different, but loving characters. I think they’re all striving to do their best, to stand up for themselves and what they believe, while also learning and changing along the way. This play showcases very real, and at times challenging, conversations that are happening all across this country. Sharing that and hopefully opening hearts and minds is why I love my job.
What is the most Challenging?
There are wonderful moments of fun and laughter and moments of strong feelings and thoughts throughout this play. So if I had to name a challenge, perhaps striving to maintain the balance of those two things, to create a joyous and thought provoking experience.
