Woman holding fresh cherry pie with Waitress text

2018/2019 Kravis on Broadway

Mar 5, 2019 - Mar 10, 2019 | Alexander W. Dreyfoos, Jr. Concert Hall

Brought  to  life  by  a  groundbreaking  all-female  creative  team,  this  irresistible  new  hit  features  original music and lyrics by 6-time Grammy® nominee Sara Bareilles (Brave, Love Song), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam), choreography by Lorin Latarro (Les Dangereuse Liasons, Waiting For Godot) and direction by Tony Award® winner Diane Paulus (Hair, Pippin, Finding Neverland). Inspired by Adrienne Shelly’s beloved film, WAITRESS tells the story of Jenna –  a waitress and expert pie maker, Jenna dreams of a way out of her small town and loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county  and  the  town’s  new  doctor  may  offer  her  a  chance  at  a  fresh  start,  while  her  fellow  waitresses offer their own recipes for happiness. But Jenna must summon the strength and courage to rebuild her own life. “It’s an empowering musical of the highest order,” raves the Chicago Tribune.  “WAITRESS is a little slice of  heaven,”  says Entertainment  Weekly; and  “a  monumental  contribution  to  Broadway,”  according  to Marie  Claire.    Don’t  miss  this  uplifting  musical  celebrating  friendship,  motherhood,  and  the  magic  of  a well-made pie.
