Overview

June 19 - 24, 2018

Inspired by Adrienne Shelly's beloved film, this irresistible new show features original music and lyrics by 6-time Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles. Brought to the stage by a groundbreaking all-female creative team, WAITRESS tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker who 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.

Contains mature content.

Please note that there is no Sunday Evening performance. Sunday Evening Season Ticket Holders will be placed into the Friday Matinee performance with the option to exchange into another performance during the show run.

Reviews

Delicious! A fairy tale that’s not simply about getting prince charming, but also getting its heroine to clean up her own messes, take action and discover her worth.

Variety

Suddenly, Waitress rises to transporting heights, and sweeps up your heart along with it.

The New York Times

Sweet, sassy, passionate and delightful, with a groundbreaking all-female creative team.
