Dallas Summer Musicals presents Waitress
Brought to life by a groundbreaking all-female creative team, Waitress features original music and lyrics by six-time Grammy® nominee Sara Bareilles, a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson, and direction by Tony Award® winner Diane Paulus.
Inspired by Adrienne Shelly’s beloved film, Waitress tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert piemaker who 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. But Jenna must summon the strength and courage to rebuild her own life.
