CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THIS AGAIN!

This Tony nominated musical (up against Hamilton) showcases what Sara Bareilles does best - fantastic sing along melodies and lyrics that tell a story with poetry, humor, melancholy, and love. I was fortunate enough to see this with Sara B. in the role of Jenna but she wrote incredible songs for each cast member. Every song got a standing ovation during the show, which made the show run three hours, but it was one of the highlights of theatre for me and my son (right up there with seeing the original Broadway cast of Into The Woods with Sondheim and Lapine in conversation and Hamilton) Can't wait to see this again!

SOOOO DELICIOUS!

Four of us saw Waitress this past Friday at Bass Hall in Ft. Worth. Bass Hall is wonderful & WE LOVED THE SHOW!! The entire ensemble was amazing & perfectly on point. The voices of the lead women melded & matched perfectly. Every singer was AMAZING!! We thought the setting & choreography were excellent. Everyone delivered a lovely, nuanced performance. It is enjoyable for ages 12 & up. We would DEFINITELY recommend this show! The ONLY criticism we all had (as well as others in the audience) was that the gain was up too high on the mics & the band overpowered the singers consistently. We probably missed more than half the lyrics to the songs, which was regrettable. Other than that, we loved ALL of the performance!! We decided we would definitely love to see this cast perform Waitress again soon!!

SOLID PLAY BUT BE CAREFUL BUYING TICKETS

Most everyone has covered the actual play. I'm writing to inform others that the stage design makes a difference on seat choices. The diner's kitchen is to the far left.. If you sit in the far left orchestra section there will be parts of the action you can't see (even the furthest right seats of that section) and the sound to the far left of the left section is terrible. The stage design is a bit questionable - why have the band centered to the stage and a set element where action happens in a place where some patrons can't see the action?

NO SURPRISE THAT NY IS BEST!

Saw in NY first with Jason Mraz and loved the energy. And just about everything. Huge long- time fan of Sara. Definitely not for kids based on adult content. Traveling show is great. Just needed a bit more energy and less southern accent emphasis while singing. Lead used speaking through her teeth as a heavy part of her southern accent. Not totally necessary. Tempo of music and dialogue were slower in Dallas. Lost the energy of some great songs and scenes. Finale was jumbled. Fair Park is a tough venue. Kinda have to sit on the floor midway to front to see. Might be better to see it at AT&T or Bass if it shows there.

"WAITRESS"

"Waitress" is sweet, funny and poignant. The great actors and songs bring it to life. Too many laughs to count! For two hours I forgot about all the Bad Stuff Out There. And in Quiet moments the audience of over 2,600 was so Still you could hear a pin drop. Theatergoers know how to behave! Yes I would recommend it to anyone. Not to children under 12. Yes found good restaurant nearby

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.
