About the Show
Waitress is a light-hearted, feel-good musical that briefly yet delightfully touches upon the themes of friendship, motherhood and self-liberation in the face of limited choices. Based on a 2007 indie film starring Keri Russell, the musical adaptation of this hit debuted on Broadway in March 2016 and was an instant success. With a bright, bubbly and infectious score by pop superstar, Sara Bareilles, you are bound to shake your feet and clap your hands as you are taken on a wonderful, musical journey in this ever-popular production.

Waitress is a heartfelt story of a young woman, Jenna Hunterson, who works as a waitress but has dreams of opening up her own pie-shop. Trapped in a cold, loveless marriage with her abusive husband Earl, and stuck in a small town, Jenna has all but given up hope. And to make matters worse, she finds herself facing an unexpected pregnancy and fears that she now has no choice but to abandon her pie-making dreams. But just when Jenna is down in the dumps and completely distraught with life, she finds out about a baking contest in a nearby county and believes that this could be her one true chance to break free.
The entire story, complete with all the characters - her fellow waitresses, customers and the handsome new doctor in town, the irresistible score and sharp directorial skills blend well together to create a perfect recipe for happiness.
Since its inception, this musical has been a runaway success, selling out completely on most nights. With best-selling artist Sara Bareilles and Tony-Award winning Diane Paulus involved in the production of this musical, ‘Waitress’ has garnered wide praise from both audiences and critics alike!
The production on Broadway has been nominated for various awards including the prestigious Tony Award for ‘Best Musical’ and Outer Critics Circle Award for ‘Outstanding New Broadway Musical’. Although the production is yet to showcase on West End, going by its performance and reception on Broadway, you can be sure that the West End adaptation is bound to be astound viewers.
"'Sugar'," 'butter' and 'flour' are the first words we hear in the new Broadway musical Waitress (* * * ½ out of four) - simple ingredients that can produce scrumptious, and healing, results. That's certainly the case with this delightful adaptation of Adrienne Shelly's 2007 film, which followed a small-town gal trapped in an unhappy marriage but blessed with a prodigious talent for making pies. Arriving in a season that has brought Hamilton and now the majestically unsettling American Psycho, the new musical may initially strike you as - pardon the inescapable food metaphors - a modest confection."
