The women of WAITRESS are changing Broadway, according to Time Magazine. Brought to life by an all-female creative team, this new hit features original music and lyrics by 6-time Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles ("Brave," "Love Song"), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson ( I Am Sam), choreography by Lorin Latarro ( Les Dangereuse Liasons, Waiting for Godot) and direction by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus ( Hair, Pippin, Finding Neverland).
Inspired by Adrienne Shelly's beloved film, “WAITRESS tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker, Jenna 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 chance at a fresh start, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes for happiness. But Jenna must summon the strength and courage to rebuild her own life.
Don't miss this uplifting musical celebrating friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.
