Opening night of Waitress in Indianapolis was a smash hit! This must-see show, came to life on stage last night and opening night was nothing short of amazing.
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) and direction by Tony Award® winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Finding Neverland). “It’s an empowering musical of the highest order!” raves the Chicago Tribune.
The audience was audibly involved all night, laughing and cheering in spots. The performers and performances are, indeed, Broadway quality.
Inspired by Adrienne Shelly’s beloved film, Waitress tells 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. But Jenna must summon the strength and courage to rebuild her own life.
Jenna, played by Christine Dwyer, was engaging, moving, and as good at acting as she was singing and Ogie, played by Jeremy Morse, stole the show every scene he was out. The audience was on its feet giving a standing ovation even before all of the performers were out for the curtain call.
Waitress, is live on stage in downtown Indianapolis at the Old National Centre now until April 28th. Don’t miss your chance to see this little slice of heaven on stage!
