Waitress Detroit Tickets
After the 2013 Tony Awards, producers Barry and Fran Weissler informed the public that their next project would be a musical adaptation of the 2007 film titled Waitress. The team went to work developing the project, and the curtain rose on the world premiere at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Mass., in August of 2015. The show's success earned it a Broadway run that officially began on Apr. 24, 2016. The production tells the story of Jenna, a diner waitress and expert pie maker. Jenna is unfulfilled in her life and stuck in a loveless marriage. When she finds out that she is pregnant, she feels trapped. Jenna begins an affair with a young doctor, but she still feels like there is something missing from her life. She resolves to leave her husband and start life over again with her baby if she can get away from her spouse.
The success of the Broadway production of Waitress spawned multiple tours. The first national Waitress tour hit the road in October of 2017 in Cleveland, Ohio. Tours were also developed for the Philippines, London and other places around the world. Waitress was nominated for multiple awards during its Broadway run. The production was nominated for Tony Awards for Best Musical and three other categories.

With these themes and some sexual situations, it is meant for a mature audience.

How is the Broadway production different from the movie version?
The Waitress musical is a faithful retelling of the movie, but there are still a few differences. The movie of the same name allows the viewer to have a very close and personal look at the actors and their characters. This is more difficult on the stage, but the stage does give the performers the ability to sing their emotions. The writers of the musical version felt a responsibility to make the script their own and a good adaptation for the stage while still honoring and respecting the original source material.
