Waitress Costa Mesa Tickets
Waitress Costa Mesa TicketsWaitress is a musical with a familiar story, but with help from the singer-songwriter named Sara Bareilles, its music makes it stand out from similar stories that have been presented on Broadway. The musical focuses on the story of a small-town girl trapped in an abusive relationship who wants to start all over again. It was a pie-making contest that opened a door for her to see the world beyond her small town, but her relationship with her co-workers and neighbors as well as her interest in a doctor complicated her decision to reach for her freedom. The production officially premiered at Brooks Atkinson Theater on April 24, 2016, and it has staged 1,465 shows as of November 2019. It was reported in late 2019 that singer and actress Katharine McPhee will play Jenna for the final months of the musical, which is scheduled to close its curtains after years of Broadway performances on January 5, 2020.
Small-Town Girl With Big DreamsIt was a team of women who adapted the indie cult favorite film into a hit Broadway musical. Back in 2007, Keri Russell starred in an indie comedy-drama film written and directed by Andrienne Shelly. Several years later, Jesse Nelson immediately accepted the offer to transform the film into a Broadway production. She shared that the movie is a favorite of hers and her daughter, and they have watched it a million times. She thought the movie was a gem and was delighted to adapt it into a musical format. Nelson’s decision to be part of the adaptation is just the start of the all-women team for Waitress. The team also featured Diane Paulus as the director, Lorin Latarro as the choreographer and Sara Bareilles as the songwriter. Nelson confessed that women's empowerment is what made her attracted to the story of Waitress. Nelson said she hopes that everyone who sees the show will be empowered after leaving the theater.
