Want to see the Broadway hit that everyone has been talking about? Lexus Broadway in Austin presented by Texas Performing Arts will host the Broadway sensation Waitress that will play Bass Concert Hall for a limited one-week engagement January 22 – 27, 2019.
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).
Inspired by Adrienne Shelly's beloved film, Waitress is the story of Jenna - a waitress and expert pie maker, Jenna 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 chance at a fresh start, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes for happiness. We recommend you see this uplifting musical celebrating friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.
