Video: Get A First Taste Of Katharine McPhee In Waitress


As Sara Bareilles takes her final bow, Broadway's Waitress is already gearing up for a brand-new Jenna to take the stage! Katharine McPhee, of American Idol and Smash fame, will be stepping into the role in just a few short weeks on April 10th. But you can get a small sample now with this charming music video for "What Baking Can Do" from the hit show, Waitress.

Inspired by Adrienne Shelly's beloved film, 
Waitress tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town's new doctor may offer her a chance at a fresh start, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes for happiness. But Jenna must summon the strength and courage to rebuild her own life.

Watch as McPhee's Jenna writes her recipes and her future--and serves up a dreamy cherry pie, then visit the show page and book your tickets to Waitress.
