WAITRESS the Musical will make you a fan, even if you haven’t seen the movie.
I didn’t have a point of reference prior to the performance but my friend who is a BIG fan of the movie was happy to discover that the Broadway play stayed true to the story….and now I want to watch the movie!
About the Show
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.
The play tackles tough topics like domestic abuse and infidelity but it will still give you lots of laughs from the cast of supporting characters full of personality.
There are a few brief sexually suggestive scenes that could be awkward for a younger audience. I wouldn’t recommend anyone younger than a high school student due to the adult themes.
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).
Don’t miss this uplifting musical celebrating friendship, motherhood,
and the magic of a well-made pie!
