May 27 - June 12, 2022
Meet 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 encounter 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.
Soon to be re-mounted on Broadway, this Tony Award®-nominated hit features original music and lyrics by Grammy® Award winner Sara Bareilles.
