About Waitress

Waitress is opening up on Broadway again at the Barrymore Theatre! Waitress tickets are available on New York Theatre Guide now.

Based on the 2007 film of the same name, distributed by Fox Searchlight Pictures, the Waitress musical had its world premiere in 2015, officially opening at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on August 19, and upon receiving wide praise and acclaim, a Broadway transfer was secured for the following spring. The musical officially opened at New York's Brooks Atkinson Theatre on April 24, 2016, following previews from March 25.

One of the dominant themes in Waitress is female empowerment and the production aptly made Broadway history upon opening by becoming the first ever Broadway musical to have four women in the four top creative team spots, with a book by Jessie Nelson, choreography by Lorin Latarro, direction by Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus and a score by Tony and Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles.

Bareilles, who had previously received Grammy nominations for Love Song and her album The Blessed Unrest, among others, also released her own studio recording in 2015 entitled What's Inside: Songs from Waitress. Her involvement with the production - her first professional foray into the world of musical theatre - received a great deal of media attention, which was only heightened when the singer made her Broadway debut in the musical herself, taking over the lead role of Jenna from original cast member Tony winner Jessie Mueller on March 31, 2017. Packed houses celebrated Bareilles for the entirety of the limited engagement through to June 11, 2017.

Waitress earned a total of four Tony nominations in 2016, including Best Musical and Best Original Score Written for the Theatre for Bareilles. The Broadway cast recording also earned her a further Grammy nomination in 2017 in the category of Best Musical Theater Album.

Waitress's emotionally driven narrative is complimented by lashings of comic relief through the hilarious antics of Jenna's workmates - Dawn and Becky - and of Dawn's pseudo-stalker-ish suitor Ogie, who confesses "I Love You Like A Table". In addition, Jenna's pie creations have also become the tasty trademarks of the show along with their imaginative names like the Deep (Sh*t) Dish Blueberry Bacon Pie. And to set the tone, the lobby of the theatre is engulfed with the delicious scent of baking apple pie when you enter the building. "Sugar, butter, flour..." yes, please!

The new production features an ever-changing cast of stars in the principal roles. Bareilles (again), Jennifer Nettles, and Ciara Renée have all played Jenna; original cast member Drew Gehling and Erich Bergen have returned as Dr. Pomatter, and comedian Nik Dodani has played Ogie, to name a few.

Waitress is the feel-good show that offers the world a scrumptious, musical slice of Americana to satisfy your theatrical appetites, so head on down to the Barrymore Theatre and find out for yourselves what's inside.

Tickets to Waitress are available now. Book Waitress tickets on New York Theatre Guide today.

Entertaining, Delightful, Heartwarming, Funny, Great acting

See it if You enjoy heartwarming stories or 'chick flicks.' I saw it twice. Once w/ original cast and once with Jordin Sparks. I preferred Sparks.

Don’t see it if you are looking for something heavy or serious. Although it does address a serious topic, its a light fun show w/ a good message and heart!
