This Weekend, a Performance of Waitress Clocks-In at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall

Something sweet is headed to Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall! From Friday, January 24th to Sunday, January 26th, audience go-ers can see the hit Broadway musical, Waitress.

Inspired by the beloved film, Waitress tells the story of Jenna, an expert pie maker who dreams of a way out of her small town. 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 Tony Award-nominated hit features original music and lyrics by seven-time Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles (“Love Song,” “Brave”), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam), and direction by Tony Award-winner, Diane Paulus (Pippin, Finding Neverland).

A waitress will run for 2 hours and 30 minutes, including an intermission. Tickets start at $42.00, which are available for purchase online at www.vanwezel.org. Don’t miss this uplifting celebration of friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie!
