WAITRESS, The Hilarious Hit Broadway Musical Comes to Midland Center for the ArtsThe diner is open and the mega-hit Broadway musical with music by Sara Bareilles, WAITRESS, comes to the Great Lakes Bay Region for two performances at Midland Center for the Arts, February 15 – 16 as part of the Huntington Bank Broadway & Beyond Series.

Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage. Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as “The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie” and “Betrayed By My Eggs Pie.” When a baking contest in a nearby county — and a satisfying encounter with someone new — show Jenna a chance at a fresh start, she must find the courage to seize it. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.
