Ok..so you never know who you might meet….a couple of weeks ago I was in NYC. At Bergdorf actually!! I was in the shoe department (the best shoe department in the world BTW) and the nicest lady started to talk to me. She was buying the most fabulous shoes for her 90!!!!! Bday party. While we were trying on different pairs she told me that she is a Broadway producer. Her name is Fran Weissler and she is probably one of the biggest and most successful Broadway producers. She told me that her most recent show is Waitress. We talked about the show and I totally became inspired in the presence of her greatness that Waitress would be our next outing!!! Here is the summary:
Based on the 2007 motion picture written by Adrienne Shelly, the new Broadway musical, Waitress, has a book by Jessie Nelson, music and lyrics by five-time Grammy Award-nominated singer songwriter Sara Bareilles and direction by Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus.
Jenna (Katharine McPhee), a waitress and expert pie maker, is stuck in a small town and a loveless marriage. When a baking contest in a nearby county offers her a chance at escape, Jenna must weigh her commitments against a rare shot at freedom and recognition. Her customers, co-workers, and the town’s handsome new doctor all offer her conflicting recipes for happiness – but Jenna must ultimately decide for herself.
OK….so here is the fun part…they pipe in smells of the amazing pies she bakes and sell mini pies in a jar for you to eat during the show. The flavors are Key Lime, Cookies and Cream, Chocolate Caramel and of course Apple….OMG!! Sign me up…we have a limited amount of orchestra tickets for the Sunday, June 10th show at 3:00 pm at $130 each. EMAIL me if you are interested. I wish Ms, Weissler would join us but you can’t have your pie and eat it toooooooo!!!!! HA
