The Waitress Broadway
Based on the 2007 film by the late Adrienne Shelly, Waitress, starring five-time Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles, is about Jenna, a 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.
With music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles and direction by Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus, this soulful production of Waitress promises to make you laugh while it makes you cry.
The Waitress Broadway Reviews
- "Waitress owes its sweetness to the mouth-watering goodness of Jessie Mueller. As a diner waitress named Jenna, Mueller is such a honey bun, she melts us like the mounds of butter that make Jenna’s homemade pies so luscious."
--Marilyn Stasio, Variety
- "Ms Mueller’s vibrant performance of this gentle but wrenching song, featuring a melody that soars and then recedes in waves, is the high point of the show — and for that matter a high point of the Broadway season. Suddenly, a pleasant and polished but weightless musical comedy rises to transporting heights and sweeps up your heart along with it."
-- Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

My headout contact, Joshua, was absolutely wonderful. I was truly delighted by the ease and friendliness I experienced with headout. Thank you!
Cheaper tickets and the ticket officer was where they said they would be. Next they need more identification that they are from head out and it just in plainclothes
Excellent communication and service. If only i'd remembered that the show was aat 7:20 and not 8!
