'Waitress' the Musical

We are thrilled to announce Waitress presented by Nashville Originals will play Andrew Jackson Hall for a one week engagement June 5-10! 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. The show is based on the book by Jessie Nelson, choreography by Lorin Latarro, and direction by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus.

Waitress is inspired by Adrienne Shelly’s beloved film, telling the story of Jenna – a waitress and expert pie maker. She dreams of a way out of her small town and loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a fresh start, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes for happiness. First, Jenna must summon the courage to rebuild her own life.

“It’s an empowering musical of the highest order!” raves the Chicago Tribune. “Waitress is a little slice of heaven!” says Entertainment Weekly and “a monumental contribution to Broadway!” according to Marie Claire, “Don’t miss this uplifting musical celebrating friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.”

Tickets for Waitress go on sale Friday, March 9 at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased at TPAC.org, the box office, or by calling 615-782-4040.
