Based on the 2007 film by the late Adrienne Shelly, Waitress follows Jenna, a pregnant waitress in the south trapped in an abusive marriage and looking for a happy ending.
Jenna dreams of a way out of her small town when a baking contest — and an encounter with an unlikely someone — show her a chance at a fresh start, but she must first find the courage to seize it. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.
Brought to life by a groundbreaking, all-female creative team, this Tony Award®-nominated hit features original music and lyrics by 7-time Grammy® nominee Sara Bareilles.
“A fresh, emotionally satisfying tale of self-liberation.”
