Waitress Minneapolis Tickets
Waitress Minneapolis TicketsBased on a 2007 independent film directed by Adrienne Shelly and starring Keri Russell, Waitress is a quirky Broadway comedy that revolves around the story of Jenna Hunterson, a waitress and chef who hatches a plan to leave her unhappy marriage and pursue her dreams by winning the grand prize in a pie contest. Though the 2007 film was a cult hit, Waitress became a surprising success on Broadway with more than 1,000 performances. The role of Jenna has attracted the talents of Jordin Sparks, Katharine McPhee, Jessie Mueller and other famous singers. Audiences in Minneapolis can now experience the musical sensation whenever it comes to town.
Baked From the HeartIn 2013, award-winning producers Barry and Fran Weissler, who have worked on revivals of Pippin, Chicago and Cabaret, announced that they would be adapting Waitress into a musical for the stage. Paula Vogel, who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1998 for her play How I Learned to Drive, was originally attached to the project as the book writer. However, after leaving the project in 2014, she was replaced by producer and director Jessie Nelson as the writer. Grammy- and Emmy-nominated singer and songwriter Sara Bareilles brought her distinctive style as composer and lyricist to the project. With all of the elements in places, Waitress made its worldwide debut at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Mass., for a limited run between Aug. 19 and Sept. 27, 2015. Tony-winner Diane Paulus served as the director. After the end of previews, the musical formally opened at Broadway’s Brooks Atkinson Theatre April 24 the following year. The Broadway production received four nominations from the Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Original Score, Best Actress in a Musical and Best Featured Actor in a Musical. Christopher Fitzgerald took home both a Drama Desk Award and an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical. The cast recording also received a 2017 Grammy nomination for Best Musical Theater Album.
