The Broadway musical with songs written by Sara Bareilles is coming downtown.
Broadway Grand Rapids is presenting the national tour of “Waitress,” brought to life by an all-woman creative team, from April 30 to May 5 at the DeVos Performance Hall.
Inspired by the 2007 film with the same name, the musical tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker, who 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, but Jenna must summon the strength and courage to rebuild her own life.
The run time is 2 hours and 30 minutes, including intermission.
The age recommendation is 13 and older.
Tickets are available online.
