Baked at a temperature of self-discovery and served on a comedic platter is the touring Broadway musical Waitress. Adapted from a 2007 film of the same name, the musical revolves around Jenna, played by Bailey McCall. She's a small town waitress working at a small town diner who, in every aspect of her life, feels stuck. Her only aspiration is her pie-making ability, along with the ridiculous names she chooses for her creations. A pie contest nearby sparks a fire in Jenna, leaving her wanting to make more out of her life. The show will incorporate songs from artist Sara Bareilles that are empowering and uplifting, all while making the perfect pies with names that reflect her life. As Jenna sorts out her life issues—on pies of course—the audience will see her character evolve and transform her life into a life as sweet as pie.
