Anyone who has ever worked in the service industry will have an immediate connection to Broadway Across Canada’s latest touring musical.
Waitress, a light-weight musical comedy romance arrives in Edmonton to play at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium from Nov. 26 to Dec. 1.
The central figure is Jenna, a perky waitress and pie maker who is stuck in an abusive marriage. An inventive dessert maker, she gives her sweets names that reflect her muddled life – names such as The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie or Betrayed By My Eggs Pie.
Pregnant and trapped in a dead-end job, Jenna dreams of escaping the small town’s boundaries. When a baking contest is announced in the next county she enters it in hopes of winning prize money for a fresh start.
A 2007 American comedy-drama film of the same name starring Keri Russell, Nathan Fillion and Jeremy Sisto inspired the musical.
