Best Place to See Local Theater

Five years ago, Joe Plambeck and Joe Bailey moved their Who Wants Cake? theater company into the Ringwald Theatre, near the corner of Nine Mile Road and Woodward Avenue in downtown Ferndale. Known for gender-bending performances of madcap subversive farce, the company has mounted productions of Fatal Attraction: A Greek Tragedy, Evil Dead: The Musical, The Hardy Boys and the Mystery of Where Babies Come From, Ronnie Larsen's Making Porn, Del Shores' Southern Baptist Sissies and many more plays that a typical theater company wouldn't touch. Next month, the company will perform The Divine Sister, with mother superior, naturally, played by Plambeck.

And of course, The Ringwald is not just The Joes, but also the amazing Jamie Warrow, Melissa Beckwith, Vince Kelley, and Matthew Turner Shelton. And in case you're wondering, there has been no casting update: Joe Bailey is still playing Mother Superior. :)
