“The first production photos have been released of Jessie Mueller and the rest of the cast in the world premiere of Sara Bareilles and Jessie Nelson’s new musical Waitress, now playing at the American Repertory Theater. The show, which is based on the motion picture written by Adrienne Shelly, has an opening night scheduled for August 19.”

“Waitress follows Jenna (Jessie Mueller), a waitress and expert pie maker who is stuck in a small town and a loveless marriage. When a baking contest in a nearby county offers her a chance at escape, Jenna must weigh her commitments against a rare shot at freedom and recognition.”
