News: Two Strangers (Carry A Cake Across New York) Release An 8 Track EP

Two Strangers (Carry a Cake Across New York) has released an eight track EP that is now available on all streaming platforms. The critically acclaimed production, starring Sam Tutty and Dujonna Gift, is transferring to the Criterion Theatre from the 4th April to the 14th July 2024.

Three of the songs that feature in the show have clocked up more than a million views on TikTok and 100 thousand views on YouTube, ‘New York’, ‘If I Believed’ and ‘What’ll It Be’. They all feature in the EP, along with other popular hits ‘This Is The Place’, ‘Be Happy’, ‘Dad’, ‘About To Go In’ and ‘This Year’.

To mark the launch Sam Tutty and Dujonna Gift will perform a series of the songs at Abbey Road Studios later today to an invited audience, hosted by BBC Radio 1 DJ Vicky Hawkesworth.

Directed by Tim Jackson, written by Jim Barne and Kit Buchan and designed by Soutra Gilmour, the critically acclaimed production enchanted audiences during its extended 10-week sold-out run at Kiln which finished on 20 January. Two Strangers (Carry a Cake Across New York) will mark Barne and Buchan’s West End debuts. Barne and Buchan won The Stage Debut Award and the Stiles & Drewe prize for new musical theatre for an earlier version of the musical titled The Season, coproduced by Royal & Derngate, Northampton and the New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich.

Sam Tutty plays Dougal, a naïve, impossibly upbeat Brit, flying to New York for his Dad’ second wedding. A Dad who he’s never known. Sam’s theatre work includes the role of Evan Hansen in Dear Evan Hansen (Noël Coward Theatre) for which he won the Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical and Once on this Island (British Theatre Academy/Southwark Playhouse). For film, his work includes Four Minute Warning and Romeo & Juliet, and for television, Hollyoaks.

Dujonna Gift plays Robin, the sister of the bride. She’s waiting for Dougal at the airport. She’s a native New Yorker, late for work and she doesn’t have time to stop and see the sights. Dujonna’s theatre work includes the multi-Olivier Award-winning, smash hit musical Hamilton (Victoria Palace Theatre), Caroline or Change (Playhouse Theatre) and Motown: The Musical (Shaftesbury Theatre). Her film work includes the upcoming Disney’s Snow White opposite Rachel Zegler.

The full creative team includes Director and Choreographer Tim Jackson; Designer Soutra Gilmour; Lighting Designer Jack Knowles; Sound Designer Tony Gayle; Orchestration by Lux Pyramid; Casting Director Julia Horan CDG and Associate Director Claira Vaughan.
