Description

Based on the 2007 film by the late Adrienne Shelly, Waitress follows Jenna, a pregnant waitress in the south trapped in an abusive marriage and looking for a happy ending. She finds relief—and potentially that happy ending—by making creatively titled pies and forming a romance with an unlikely newcomer.

Waitress is the irresistible hit musical featuring original songs by 5-time Grammy® nominee Sara Bareilles (“Brave,” “Love Song”), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam) and direction by Tony Award® winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Finding Neverland).

Inspired by Adrienne Shelly’s beloved film, Waitress tells the story of Jenna (Tony winner Jessie Mueller), a waitress and expert pie maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a fresh start, but Jenna must summon the strength to rebuild her own life.

“WAITRESS is a little slice of heaven!” says Entertainment Weekly. Don’t miss this uplifting musical celebrating friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.
