Based on the 2007 Adrienne Shelley film of the same name, Waitress tells the story of Jenna Hunterson, a small-town waitress with a special knack for baking pies. Jenna uses baking to navigate the highs and lows of her life, including an abusive spouse, an unplanned pregnancy, and a clandestine affair with her OBGYN. A perfect blend of sweet and tart, Waitress was an immediate success on Broadway, due in large part to its acclaimed score by singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles. The show was nominated for four Tony Awards in 2016 and has become a fan-favorite over the years, with thousands of people stopping by the diner to experience what baking can do.
