The Main Ingredients of Waitress

Jenna, the main character in the Sara Bareilles musical Waitress, bakes pies for the diner where she works. Dreaming of a fresh start, she enters a pie-baking contest and writes her own personal recipe for happiness. To celebrate this hit Broadway musical, which will be part of Broadway at the Ordway next season, we’re hosting a special pre-Valentine’s Day Meet the Artists event. Tune in online for a conversation with the stars of Waitress, watch a special music video sneak peek from the show, and learn the winners of our Valentine’s Day pie contest (more at the link below). It’s fun and it’s free! From the Ordway, with love.
