A Story about Baking and Relationships
Waitress, the Broadway musical, is inspired by a film with the same name written by Adrienne Shelly. Tony Award winner Jessie Mueller stars in the role of Jenna, a waitress and talented pie maker who works at a diner and feels trapped in a small Southern town and a loveless marriage. She unexpectedly becomes pregnant and fears that she will be forced to give up her dream of opening her own pie shop. Jenna decides to enter a pie baking contest hoping to win a substantial prize. She also begins an affair with a local doctor in the hopes of making a fresh start.
Previous Production of Waitress
The original stage production of Waitress made its debut in August 2015 at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The musical was directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus and choreographed by Chase Brock. It featured original music and lyrics written by Sara Bareilles, a singer, songwriter, and five-time Grammy Award nominee. Jessie Mueller played the lead role of Jenna. Waitress was nominated for 2015 Outer Critics Circle and Drama League Awards for Best Musical.
Waitress transferred to the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on Broadway in early 2016, with previews beginning in March and an official opening in April. Parts of the book were changed, new choreography was developed, and Bareilles wrote a new song for the Broadway production.
Historic All-Female Creative Team
The Broadway production of Waitress is the work of an all-female creative team. The book was written by screenwriter Jessie Nelson, and the play is choreographed by Lorin Latarro and directed by Diane Paulus. The music and lyrics were written by Bareilles. Waitress made Broadway history as the first play with the top four creative posts all filled by women. Other prominent positions in the Broadway production are also held by women.
