Shoshana Bean has quite the impressive resume, making her Broadway debut in Hairspray and starred as the first replacement for Elphaba in Wicked. Recently her album Spectrum hit #1 on the Billboard Jazz charts.

Waitress tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage. Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as “The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie” and“Betrayed By My Eggs Pie.”When a baking contest in a nearby county — and a satisfying run-in with someone new — show Jenna a chance at a fresh start, she must find the courage to seize it. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.
