This Broadway transfer caused such a sensation in New York. It's also exciting because it's the first time a West End musical has had an entirely female creative team (about bloody time!) including music and lyrics from six-time Grammy award winning singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles. It's great fun with some brilliantly catchy tunes.
Waitress tells the story of Jenna, an expert pie maker in a small town, who dreams of a way out of her loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a chance at a new life, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes to happiness. But Jenna must find the courage and strength within herself to rebuild her life. This American musical celebrates friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.
