Waitress, the new musical from Sara Bareilles | Theatre

| On
The poster for the Sara Bareilles musical has been released and we decided that it’s something you should know about.

The story of Jenna, a newly-pregnant diner girl with a knack for pie-making, stuck in an unhappy marriage in her small Southern town, Waitress is a musical adaption of the 2007 film of the same name, written AND directed by the late Adrienne Shelly.

Now directed by Diane Paulus (Finding Neverland, Pippin, Hair), the book is written by Jessie Nelson (screenwriter of I Am Sam, Stepmom, The Story of Us) and the music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles (five time Grammy Award nominee). The show will also star 2014 Tony Award for Best Lead Actress in a Musical winner, Jessie Mueller (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical).  

Check out that lady line-up!!

Waitress is set to hit the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, MA in August.

After the success for the  all female writing team for Fun Home (2015 Tony Award for Best Musical, Best Book for a Musical and Best Score for a Musical), Cause a Cine wishes the best luck to Waitress and it’s cast and crew.
