When she doesn’t receive the scholarship that would
send her to her dream school, habitual overachiever
Jane Huang, with the help of her best friend, joins
forces with the class degenerate to build the greatest
drug empire ever run by high schoolers. Kept in the
dark are Jane’s parents, whose inability to cope with
their daughter leaving for college while maintaining a
profit at their struggling Chinese bakery drives them
to pry and potentially unravel Jane’s web of lies.
Baked! The Musical is a reflection on perfectionism,
self worth, and the question of what we owe the people
we love. It features an all Asian American cast, and
the themes are born out of the writers’ own experiences
growing up as the children of immigrants
in the US.
