Get your tickets while they're hot! You don't want to miss the Broadway performance of "Waitress" at Richmond's Altria Theater.

Follow the hilarious drama that is Jenna's life as a pie-maker trapped in a small town and a less-than-ideal marriage. Each pie is made with intention, and you'll be craving a "Betrayed By My Eggs Pie" by the time the show is over. Her crazy co-workers are not without their own angst either, so prepare to commiserate with them in this relatable tale.


WHEN: February 12-16, 2019
WHERE: Altria Theater | 6 North Laurel Street in Richmond, VA
PARKING: Pay garage options available at VCU parking garages. Cost is $10 per car (cash only). Limited street parking is available near the venue.

This would be a perfect date night or girls' night out. The story has been lovingly crafted by an all-female creative team. Get ready to become addicted to the music -- the soundtrack features original hit music and lyrics by six-time Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles (think of the major girl-power anthem, "Brave").

The book comes to us from acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson, and the production is directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus of Pippin and Finding Neverland. If you liked the movie, you'll love the theatrical performance!
