Based on the 2007 film by the late Adrienne Shelly, Waitress, is a heartwarming story of love, friendship, motherhood, and the perseverance to overcome life’s challenges. With music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles, and direction by Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus, this soulful production promises to make you laugh while it makes you cry.

Why Watch Waitress

Starring five-time Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles, Waitress is one of Broadway’s most recent successes. Uplifting and relatable, the musical strikes a personal chord with audiences. Bareille’s score debuted at number ten on the US Billboard 200 chart, and instantly received outstanding critical acclaim.

The Story

Waitress tells the story of Jenna, a young waitress and an expert baker. Pregnant and caught in a loveless marriage, Jenna finds happiness in her creative pies. When a baking contest in a nearby county offers her a rare chance at escape, she must weigh her commitments against this shot at freedom. Her customers, co-workers and a handsome new doctor in town all offer her conflicting recipes for happiness- but Jenna must decide for herself.

Critics Reviews

“Ms. Mueller, who won a Tony for her performance in "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical," possesses a rich, soulful and emotionally translucent voice, and an ability to bring heaping cupfuls of subtext to her acting.”
– New York Times

“The key statement is not that Waitress is a musical from a team of women, but that Waitress is a good musical from a creative team who happen to be women.”
– Huffington post

I've always have a good experience with Headout. The host is always prompt and reliable. The shows and the discounts/credits make broadway affordable. I use the app and I get credits, tickets and have fun at the same time. Thanks!
