THE HIT MUSICAL WAITRESS COMES TO THE THEATRE IN MAY
The hit musical Waitress, presented by Barry & Fran Weissler and David Ian, has rescheduled its first
ever UK and Ireland tour which will now open at the Alhambra Theatre, Bradford, on Saturday 1
Waitress is based on the 2007 movie written by Adrienne Shelley. Music and lyrics are written by
GRAMMY award-winning, singer-songwriter sensation Sara Bareilles. With a book by Jessie
Nelson, direction by Tony-award winner Diane Paulus and choreography by Lorin Latarro, Waitress
has garnered multiple awards and nominations in both America and the UK, receiving acclaim from
both audiences and critics alike.
Waitress opened on Broadway on 24 April 2016 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, where it ran until 5
January 2020. Waitress celebrated its official opening night at the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West
End on 7 March 2019.
Waitress tells the story of Jenna, an expert pie maker in a small town, who dreams of a way out of
her loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a
chance at a new life, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes to happiness. But Jenna must
find the courage and strength within herself to rebuild her life. This beautiful musical celebrates
friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.
