Waitress the Musical – Live on Broadway! will play in cinemas across the USA as part of a special engagement for five days only, presented by Bleecker Street and Fathom Events.

The filmed production of the run will launch on 7 December 2023. The press release says: “Waitress: The Musical brings the Tony-nominated, Broadway phenomenon to the big screen. Featuring composer-lyricist Sara Bareilles as Jenna Hunterson, a waitress and expert pie maker stuck in a small town and a loveless marriage. When a baking contest in a nearby county offers her a chance at escape, Jenna fights to reclaim a long-forgotten part of herself. Through the support of her fellow waitresses and an unexpected romance, Jenna begins to find the courage to take a long-abandoned dream off the shelf. Waitress celebrates the power of friendship, dreams, the family we choose and the beauty of a well-baked pie.”

Plans for an international release have not yet been confirmed.
