Let 'Em Eat Cake is a Broadway musical with music by George Gershwin, lyrics by Ira Gershwin, and book by George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind. It is the sequel to the Pulitzer prize-winning Of Thee I Sing and had the same producer, writers, and stars. However, the tone of Let 'Em Eat Cake was much darker and the issues more complex - President Wintergreen is defeated for reelection, and he and his former Vice President, Alexander Throttlebottom, form an incipient Fascist movement to take over the government.

  • Let ’Em Eat Cake ist ein Musical mit der Musik von George Gershwin, den Gesangstexten von Ira Gershwin und einem Buch von George Simon Kaufman und Morrie Ryskind. Es handelt sich um die Fortsetzung des Musicals Of Thee I Sing des gleichen Autorenteams aus dem Jahre 1931. Die Uraufführung fand am 21. Oktober 1933 im Imperial Theatre in New York statt. Dem als satirischen Kommentar auf die Herrschaftsform der Diktatur gedachten Stück war wenig Erfolg beschieden, es wurde nach 90 Aufführungen am Broadway abgesetzt. Seine auf die Zeit und die amerikanischen Verhältnisse ausgerichtete Handlung verhinderte eine Aneignung des Stoffes außerhalb der Vereinigten Staaten. Der bekannteste Titel aus dem Musical ist der Song Mine.
