Waitress San Antonio Tickets
Waitress San Antonio TicketsWhen Waitress went up on Broadway in 2016, it already had quite a history behind it. The original story first took form as a film that was released in 2007. Later, a premiere at the American Repertory Theater in Massachusetts brought the story of the pie-making waitress Jenna to theater audiences. Like the Waitress’s main character, the show itself has great heart. Through a series of both snappy and soulful songs, people who hold Waitress San Antonio tickets will begin to believe that a little pie and even bigger dose of courage are enough to turn even the grimmest of circumstances around.
The Film Before the MusicalThe musical Waitress is based on a small indie film of the same name, which was released in 2007. It was the brainchild of actor-writer-filmmaker Adrienne Shelly, who was known for playing interesting and beguiling women and for spearheading film projects that were meant to encourage women. Her film Waitress eventually got accepted into the Sundance Film Festival and then after several years, became the smash Broadway hit that it is today. Unfortunately, Shelly died in 2006 before she could see the magnitude of the success that her film spawned. The show Waitress has all the earmarks of a show that Adrienne Shelly herself might have produced. It has an all-female creative team that supports the woman-fronted show. Critical acclaim has followed the musical since the beginning. In 2016, it got nominations from awards organizations, like the Tony's and Drama Desk. Finally, today, there is a foundation dedicated to Adrienne Shelly that supports female filmmakers.

What is notable about the music for Waitress?This show has been groundbreaking in terms of the number of women working in prominent spots in the production, and while all of them are noteworthy, two of the women behind the music, are worth a more detailed mention. Singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles wrote the music, which turned what was a straight film into a musical. She received nods from many awards organizations for her work in Waitress. However, Bareilles’s music wouldn’t reach its full theatrical potential if it didn’t have an orchestra to back the actors’ voices. That’s where Madeline Smith comes in. At the age of 24, Smith picked up the baton to conduct Waitress and in the process, became the youngest woman on Broadway to conduct an orchestra for a theatrical production.
What other shows might Waitress fans enjoy seeing?Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera are two shows that might appeal to musical theater lovers.
