Baked! The Musical is an original, all-Asian musical comedy about family, failure, and weed.
Overachiever Jane Huang doesn’t get the scholarship that would send her to her dream college -- but that doesn't stop her! With the help of her best friend, Jane joins forces with the class degenerate to build the greatest cannabis edible empire ever run by high schoolers. Kept in the dark are Jane’s parents, who struggle to maintain a profit at their Chinese bakery while coping with their only daughter leaving home...
Featuring an all Asian American cast and a contemporary pop-rock score, this hilarious and heartwarming new musical reflects on self worth and the question of what we owe the people we love. The themes are born out of the writers’ experiences growing up as the children of immigrants in the US.
featuring SAVIDU GEEVARATNE, TIMOTHY HUANG, MINJI KIM, CLAIRE KWON, JASON MA, HAZEL ANNE RAYMUNDO, SUSHMA SAHA, LIANAH STA. ANA and DREW TANABE
