    The musical Waitress takes you on an intimate journey, as we meet Jenna, a waitress who has a talent for making wonderful pies, and those she works with at Joe’s Pie, a diner in “a small town off Highway 27.” This is a slice of life and pie musical that offers audiences hopes and dreams as defined by everyday challenges and conflicts faced by Jenna and her co-workers. Waitress is a true audience-pleaser.
