Arnie Burton has joined the cast of Fairycakes at the Greenwich House Theater. Burton will replace previously announced cast member Brooks Ashmanskas, who has departed the show to pursue a television opportunity.

Burton joins Mo Rocca, Alfie Fuller, Sabatino Cruz, Jackie Hoffman, Kuhoo Verma, Z Infante, Ann Harada, Jamen Nanthakumar, Julie Halston, Chris Myers, and Jason Tam in the cast. Five-time Tony nominee Douglas Carter Beane, who created Fairycakes, will also direct, and Ellenore Scott will choreograph.

Fairycakes is a comedy mashup of A Midsummer Night's Dream and various classic fairytales. An assortment of fabled characters meets one night in the woods, making mischief and eventually falling into all sorts of unlikely love.

Fairycakes begins performances October 14 ahead of an October 24 opening night. The show will run at the Greenwich House Theater through January 2, 2022.

Fairycakes tickets are on sale now.
