Brooks Atkinson Theatre

256 West 47th Street (Broadway-Eighth Avenue) New York, New York

Based on the popular film, this new musical features music and lyrics by five-time Grammy Award nominee singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles, a book by Jessie Nelson (Corinna, Corrina), and direction by Tony winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Finding Neverland, The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess). Waitress stars Tony winner Jessie Mueller (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical) as Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker stuck in a small town and a loveless marriage. Faced with an unexpected pregnancy, Jenna fears she may have to abandon the dream of opening her own pie shop forever… until a baking content in a nearby county and the town’s handsome new doctor offer her a tempting recipe for happiness.  Supported by her quirky crew of fellow waitresses and loyal customers, Jenna summons the secret ingredient she’s been missing all along—courage.
