My mother & I see the touring production of Waitress at The Majestic Theater

When He Sees Me

Waitress tells the story of Jenna, a woman who is pregnant without any desire, that is trapped in an abusive relationship in a very small town. She escapes her trauma by baking pies and names them by their ingredients and events she is going through. She works as a waitress at Joe’s Pie Diner with her best friends and sells her pies. When she meets the new male gynecologist, she ends up getting sparks and having romantic feelings.

She Used to Be Mine

Waitress is important to me because I am a huge fan of Sara Bareilles and her music as she wrote the music & lyrics for the show. I have been following the show when it started out as a concept album and fell in love instantly to the words of the songs because they were touching and inspirational.

What Baking Can Do

Waitress is based on the 2007 motion picture, directed by the late Adrienne Shelly before she died. It demonstrates motherhood, friendship and finding the strength within yourself.  The empowering message is that women can achieve their goals and how the production breaks down gender and casting stereotypes.

Tip: You can purchase tickets for the North American Tour of Waitress as it visits a city near you.
