Based on the late Adrienne Shelly’s 2007 Sundance film Waitress, Waitress the musical took the Broadway stage in April 2016 and has been a hit ever since! With an all-female creative team, including music and lyrics written by 6-time Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles, book written by Jessie Nelson, and direction by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus, the show has become an example of strong female leadership since its inception.
The story follows Jenna as she works in a diner with her friends Becky and Dawn. Jenna is passionate about baking pies, but isn’t so passionate about her marriage. While Becky and Dawn discover things in their lives, Jenna gets a chance to rebuild her own life when a new doctor and a baking contest come to town.
You have many chances to see the show while the US tour continues and the Broadway cast takes the stage at Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York. See Katharine McPhee in her Broadway debut as Jenna through August 19th, or catch the show on tour! Buy your tickets now at Fleekseats.com.
