A bitter sweet slice of life

Our Broadway reviewer saw the production of Waitress in NYC in 2016 and had this to say about this sweet new musical!

"Waitress is making history as the first musical in Broadway to be lead by four women in the top creative slots (writer, composer, director, choreographer). While many Broadway shows sweep you away into far away worlds and mystical settings, Waitress offers a slice of life from a small town diner with little to nothing going on. Each character is dealing with universal concerns, and searching for the courage needed to reach the level of happiness they desire.

Choreographer Lorin Latarro has added an evident pulse to the show - as more joy and flow starts to occur in their lives so to do their movements become more fluid! The synergy between the cast is wonderful to watch and lighting designer Christopher Akerlind guides us from reality to day dreams with ease.

Sarah Bareilles and her band's contribution in creating the music for Waitress has generated a lot of hype, and given the show's recent Tony nominations for Best Musical, and Best Original Score I would say the proof is in the pudding!"
