Paramount Theatre Downtown
Recommended by Nathalie Graham
Remember that 2007 movie starring Keri Russell as the waitress who bakes her feelings? Vaguely, at least? That’s okay, you can refresh your memory by checking out the fresh-from-Broadway musical adaptation that’s stopping for a run at the Paramount Theatre. The reviews of Waitress were “mixed-to-positive,” but it garnered four Tony nominations, which is saying something. It didn’t win any of the Tonys it was nominated for, which is also saying something. Sara Bareilles—the singer-songwriter responsible for that ubiquitous 2007 hit “Love Song”—wrote the score. It’s about pie. It’ll be good.
