Event Info

Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage. Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as “The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie” and “Betrayed By My Eggs Pie.” When a baking contest in a nearby county — and a satisfying encounter with someone new — show Jenna a chance at a fresh start, she must find the courage to seize it. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.

Brought to life by a groundbreaking all-female creative team, this irresistible new hit features original music and lyrics by 7-time Grammy® nominee Sara Bareilles ("Brave," "Love Song"), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam), choreography by Lorin Latarro (Les Liaisons dangereuse, Waiting For Godot) and original direction by Tony Award® winner Diane Paulus (Hair, Pippin, Finding Neverland).

“WAITRESS is a little slice of heaven!” says Entertainment Weekly, and is “sweet, sassy and passionate,” according to New York Magazine.

"It's an empowering musical of the highest order!" raves the Chicago Tribune. Don't miss this uplifting and hilarious musical celebrating friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.

We believe the arts provide an open door for difficult conversations by exploring topics and themes that affect the human condition and social norms. We hope these subjects encourage thought and conversation to allow us to recognize and acknowledge these issues through awareness, empathy, understanding, and compassion. Unlike movies, live entertainment such as comedy or Broadway productions do not have a standard content rating system. Sometimes the content of a live event could be considered inappropriate or otherwise unsuitable for children under 18. In fact, some content can be challenging or offensive to people of any age. Many resources exist online to provide more information about shows and events, and this information may help you make your own decision as to whether you would enjoy the performance. As personal tastes vary widely, we strongly advise that you conduct your own research before you purchase tickets to any Tennessee Theatre event. All ticket sales are final.
