Broadway Balances America: A Visit with Cast and Director.
The Balancing Act Goes behind the scenes with Broadway musical Waitress, which just embarked on its first U.S. tour. Inspired by the late Adrienne Shelly’s 2007 film, Waitress tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker who dreams of escaping her small town and loveless marriage. Amber Milt sits down with Tony Award-winning director Diane Paulus and finds out how the all-female creative team brought this groundbreaking show to Broadway. This irresistible new hit features original music and lyrics by six-time Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles (“Brave,” “Love Song”), who tells us why this project is so close to her heart.
