BroadwayWorld was there for the special night and you can check out photo coverage from inside the after party below!Based on the 2007 motion picture written by Adrienne Shelly, Waitress is the first Broadway musical in history to have four women in the four top creative team spots, with book by Jessie Nelson, score by five-time Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles, choreography by Lorin Latarro and direction by Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus.
WAITRESS tells the story of Jenna, a Waitress and expert pie maker in a small town, who dreams of a way out of her loveless marriage. A baking CONTEST in a nearby county and the town's new doctor may offer her a chance at a new life while her fellow Waitresses offer their own recipes to happiness. But Jenna must find the courage and strength within herself to rebuild her life. This new American musical celebrates friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.
