‘Waitress’ making three-day run at Lexington Opera House
Popular comedy runs Feb. 11-13
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Co-presenters Broadway Live, Clark Distributing and Coors Light are thrilled to announce WAITRESS will play the Lexington Opera House for a limited weekend engagement! The “diner” opens at the Opera House stage for five performances only February 11 – 13.
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.
