Audiences in Kansas City, Mo., will laugh and cry right along with Jenna and friends, from the time that the first note is sung until the last one dies away.
Pies, Pies and More PiesIn the retail and hospitality world, it isn’t unusual for a company to add scent to space to contribute to the overall ambiance. However, it has never been done for a Broadway musical until Waitress. To support the play’s themes, including the pie-baking aspect of the show, the show’s producers wanted the audience to experience the smell of pie during the performance. To create this effect, the producers hit upon an idea: They installed a convection oven in the theater and hired a pie consultant to bake a pie each night. The scent permeates the space: When the characters are baking pie in the show, the pie consultant is nearby, creating the smell of pie. It’s a sort of low-tech special effect for the theater, not unlike the dry ice that’s used to create the fog in another popular musical The Phantom of the Opera.
