Tickets are now on sale for WAITRESS, which will play at the Fox Theatre for a limited one-week engagement from February 5-10, 2019.
Waitress the Musical is unlike any other. The music tells a story and evokes emotion, it will make you laugh, it will make you cry, it will make you want to get out of your seat and dance. – Luke Crisler
Inspired by Adrienne Shelly’s beloved film, WAITRESS tells the story of Jenna. Jenna is a young waitress working at Lulu’s pie shop and trying to navigate the struggles of marriage, abuse, and self-reliance. Jenna has dreams of accomplishing bigger things in her life but she feels held back by her loveless marriage. When Jenna finally has the courage to leave, an unexpected surprise holds her back. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a chance at a fresh start, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes for happiness. But Jenna must summon the strength and courage to rebuild her own life.
Brought to life by a groundbreaking all-female creative team, this irresistible new hit features original music and lyrics by 6-time Grammy® nominee Sara Bareilles (“Brave,” “Love Song”), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam), choreography by Lorin Latarro (Les Dangereuse Liasons, Waiting For Godot) and direction by Tony Award® winner Diane Paulus (Hair, Pippin, Finding Neverland).
Local Atlanta resident, Maiesha McQueen, plays Becky on tour.
Riley and Harper share the role of Lulu for the Atlanta performance.
I saw Waitress on Broadway within its first year. A very well known, Sarah Bareilles, played the role of Jenna and she was impeccable. The experience of seeing Waitress in New York was amazing. I am excited to see what the national touring cast has to offer. The Fox Theater has a beautiful stage and wonderful ambiance for this show. I’m very excited to see this wonderful show again. – Luke Crisler
