Waitress

Waitress

Broadway
Musical
Original
Based upon the 2007 motion picture, Waitress features a new score by five-time Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles, a book by Jessie Nelson, direction by Diane Paulus and choreography by Lorin Latarro, making it the first Broadway musical in history with an all-female creative team. Recording artist and actor Katharine McPhee stars as Jenna in this uplifting new musical that celebrates friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.

SYNOPSIS: Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker, is stuck in a small town and a loveless marriage. When a baking contest in a nearby county offers her a chance at escape, Jenna must weigh her commitments against a rare shot at freedom and recognition. Her customers, co-workers, and the town’s handsome new doctor all offer her conflicting recipes for happiness but Jenna must ultimately decide for herself.
