EXCELLENT

Saw this show in New York Twice. I've seen just about every Broadway show and this is one of the top 5. If only Christopher Fitzgerald could have a permanent role as "Ogie." He is HYSTERICAL. Laugh out loud hysterical. But all of the cast were wonderful. I want to see it again.

MAGNIFICENT

Attended the 2 PM today 1/26. Made me tear up in a good way many times. Just magnificent.

5.0 star rating Gail Buzzotta from St. Louis, Missouri

LOVED EVERY MINUTE!

From start to finish, this musical was solid with all of the splendid characteristics of a great show! The performers were right on cue, even little Lulu (starring Penelope Garcia). Because the Fabulas Fox Theatre has excellent acoustics, the actors’ incredible voices were highlighted making the show even more enjoyable. And a bonus was having the band on stage with the performers. So glad Waitress came to St Louis ~ Big Thumbs Up!

SUPERB SHOW, EXCELLENT ACTING AND SINGING

The show was terrific! The acting was incredible! Although some serious subject matters, the overall tone was fun and the show had me laughing out loud often. The cast was perfect!

WONDERFUL!!!

Four of us went to see Waitress on the 29th and we loved it. The acting, singing and choreography were outstanding. It was very well cast, the characters were all very believable. It made you laugh and cry and feel good at the end. I liked it, because it mpowers women. We would definitely recommend seeing Waitress !

SOLID PLAY BUT BE CAREFUL BUYING TICKETS

Most everyone has covered the actual play. I'm writing to inform others that the stage design makes a difference on seat choices. The diner's kitchen is to the far left.. If you sit in the far left orchestra section there will be parts of the action you can't see (even the furthest right seats of that section) and the sound to the far left of the left section is terrible. The stage design is a bit questionable - why have the band centered to the stage and a set element where action happens in a place where some patrons can't see the action?

4.0 star rating Freeman from Washington, District of Columbia

FUN SHOW

Worth seeing for sure. Only disappointment is lead actress. Everyone else amazing.

What we thought

Colourful creative ENCHANTING

Waitress is making history as the first musical in Broadway to be lead by four women in the top creative slots!

While many Broadway shows sweep you away into far away worlds and mystical settings, Waitress offers a simply charming slice of life from a small town diner with little to nothing going on.
