I really enjoyed the production of Waitress. I regret not seeing it when Jessie Mueller was starring, but Katharine McPhee played the role with a lot of passion as well. The sound quality was not as good as other Broadway shows that I’ve seen. It...More

Waitress was a very funny musical. It was fun to see, but you can't be too uptight as there is a lot of cussing and some immoral activities going on. Take it for what it is- just a musical play and have fun!

This show is FANTASTIC! So much fun! Probably the best show I've seen in a long time. My mom's words were "I don't think I could have enjoyed anything more than that". They are all talented, but the guy who plays Earl... he can SING....More

Waitress had more substance that I anticipated and we all really enjoyed it. After the show, folks hung around for Karioki. Lot's of aspiring actors went up and stage and sang the songs. The theatre is beautiful.

We loved this show. Everything was enjoyable- cast, music and sets. It was well acted and the songs were great. I highly recommend seeing this show.

Having little or no knowledge in advance of Waitress, we were happily surprised at this charming and funny musical. Some of the songs' words were lost in the volume, but that is often a problem in any musical. The show effectively makes fun of human...More

Such a fun show. Music was fantastic, staging was very creative and Katherine Mc Phee was terrific as the lead. She has a wonderful voice! Had a great time and would recommend the show to anyone over the age of 13 (due to some sexual...More

This was truly one of the BEST Broadway musicals we have EVER seen! The actors (Erich Bergen and Stephanie Torns) took time to visit fans and sign Playbills afterward--MUCH APPRECIATED!

A big fan of Sara Bareilles and Jessie Mueller. This show was very funny at times but quite serious at other times (eg spousal abuse) so the emotions were really all over the place. I have been to many Broadway shows and I think an...More

I think this musical was boring ---but in fairness, the music was soooo loud, I could not understand a word of the lyrics. I had a headache by intermission and left. I saw the movie and from what I could tell, it was waaay better....More

The pies are not for sale. They are baked by the cast for the aroma in the theater. The cast takes them home after. By then, they are over baked. You would not want one!
