Waitress Tickets & Information

It’s the irresistible new musical featuring original songs by Sara Bareilles, a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam) and direction by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (PippinFinding Neverland). Inspired by Adrienne Shelly’s beloved film, Waitress tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker who dreams of a way out of her small town. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a fresh start, but Jenna must summon the strength to rebuild her own life. “Waitress is a little slice of heaven!” says Entertainment Weekly. Don’t miss this uplifting celebration of friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.
