“THE WOMEN OF WAITRESS ARE CHANGING BROADWAY!” (Time Magazine).
Brought to life by a groundbreaking all-female creative team, this irresistible 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).
“It's an empowering musical of the highest order!” raves the Chicago Tribune.
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.
“WAITRESS is a little slice of heaven!” says Entertainment Weekly and “a monumental contribution to Broadway!” according to Marie Claire. Don't miss this uplifting musical celebrating friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.
Audience Recommendation: Performances are recommended for a general audience. As an advisory to adults who might bring young people, WAITRESS is recommended for ages 13 and up as the show's story contains an abusive marriage and an extramarital affair, parental guidance is suggested. If you're a fan of the original film, you'll find the stage adaptation an absolute blast – whether you are planning a girl’s night out or a couple’s date night. All persons entering the theater, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
