Went with Niece and sister. All three loved the show. Lots of laughs. great stress reducer for us all. Go see it!

4.0 star rating Trish Anderson from Wilmington, North Carolina


The musical was delightful! we throughly enjoyed it. However, the downside is the audio @ The Wilson Center. We were seated on the aisle in the orchestra row p and literally had a terrible time understanding the lyrics of most of the numbers. The amplitude was fine but the clarity was not especially with the group numbers. This is not the first time this has occurred, it appears that it is an on going problem especially with the muscials..Also we heard several others remark about this situation. For the price of the tickets we will travel to DPAC or Blumenthal in the future. It is a shame because it is a lovely auditorium..

Cast was excellent. Scenery and choreography was top notch. Loved the music and the presentation. Only drawback is the theatre is quite run down and could use serious repair.

3.0 star rating Marcuserroneous from Cleveland, Ohio


The staging, costumes, singing and choreography were good. However, the story was ho-hum and only picked up after the intermission. The songs were forgettable. The only really memorable character was the nerdy guy. The show has a couple of songs and some dialog that are too raunchy for non-adults and one's mother. The Wed. evening show was sold out, but I guess not really for this show but for the Hamilton show it was bundled with.

3.0 star rating Renay L from Thornhill, Ontario


I saw the dramatic movie Waitress several years ago and remembered the main story line. The musical theatrical production of Waitress had a lot of comedic moments and I had a good laugh. I liked and enjoyed the show, since I didn't have great expectations. Also, this was a good show to see as summer soon ends. Overall, however, Waitress is a B-rated Broadway musical.

2.0 star rating David from Tucson, Arizona


Sound quality was horrible. Could not hear the majority of spoken word. Overall it was so so. Would not recommend it as a musical.

2.0 star rating Paul from Chicago, Illinois


Although the voices were good enough, the music was forgettable and the story was not very interesting. Didn't really connect with any of the characters, especially the lead. Unlike most of the musicals I've seen there is not one song I'd be interested in hearing again on a soundtrack.

What we thought

colourful Creative ENCHANTING

Waitress is making history as the first musical in Broadway to be lead by four women in the top creative slots!

While many Broadway shows sweep you away into far away worlds and mystical settings, Waitress offers a simply charming slice of life from a small town diner with little to nothing going on.
