Why See Waitress?

Broadway's sweetest Treat

After whipping up a whirlwind of acclaim and box office receipts on the Great White Way, Waitress hits the road on its first ever national tour. Based on a 2007 indie movie, this big hearted musical tells the story of diner waitress named Jenna who's presented with a chance to leave her suffocating small town existence behind, and grabs it with both hands! With a book by Hollywood screenwriter Jessie Nielson (Hope Springs) and insanely catchy score from Grammy nominated pop singer Sara Bareilles, Waitress is a melt-in-your-mouth hit!

Waitress is directed by Tony winner and Boston's ART Artistic Director Diane Paulus (Pippin, Finding Neverland) and choreographed by Lorin Latarro (Waiting for Godot). While the lead role was originated on Broadway by Tony winner Jessie Meuller (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical), casting for this touring production is yet to be announced.

WHAT IS WAITRESS ABOUT?

Jenna works as a pie chef in a small town diner. Her time spent baking is a kind of meditation, a break from her mundane existence where her creativity is allowed to flourish. Renowned throughout the town for her crinkly crusts and fluffy pastries, she harbours dreams of opening her own pie shop and making a new life for herself. But when she becomes unexpectedly pregnant by her bullying husband Earl, it seems like she may have to abandon her dreams forever.

Hope is at hand in the form of the town's handsome new doctor, and the announcement of a pie-making competition in a nearby town. The winner of the contest will be awarded a large cash prize, and Jenna realises it may be her one shot at turning her life around.

Did You Know?

Waitress was the first Broadway musical in history to have the four major creative roles - book, score, direction & choreography - filled by women.
