Broadway’s hit show “Waitress The Musical” is returning to Playhouse Square for the first time since 2017 for a special 5-week engagement starting May 26, 2022.
The show will have a very intimate feeling as it’s playing the Hanna Theatre which seats 550 people compared to 2017 when it played in Connor Palace which seats 2,714 seats.
“The return of Waitress as a Huntington Bank Featured performance will serve up an especially sweet experience for our audiences this summer,” Gina Vernac, Playhouse Square CEO stated.
Pre-sales for Playhouse Square Donors begin tomorrow, February 8, and for Season Ticket Holders on Monday, February 21. The public on-sale is Wednesday, March 2. Tickets start at $49.
The Hanna Theatre presents the show’s original creative team with the opportunity to enhance aspects of the production to create an even more enveloping experience for audiences. Cleveland is currently one of only two cities presenting this new version.
Waitress tells the story of Jenna, 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 Waitress’s 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.
