Adrienne Shelly and Jessie Nelson wrote the musical based on the 2007 motion picture Waitress, starring Keri Russell. Grammy winner Sara Bareilles also composed the musical score, who has sold over one million albums and over nine million singles, including two of her biggest hits, Love Song and Brave.

The musical follows Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town as she faces an unhappy marriage, an unplanned pregnancy, and a dead-end job. She soon finds a chance at a fresh start when a baking contest in a nearby county — and an encounter with someone new – if she can only see the courage to seize her unique opportunity.
