Megan Hilty Visits Smash Costar Katharine McPhee at Broadway's Waitress
McPhee stars as Jenna through June 17.
The Brooks Atkinson Theatre played host to a Smash reunion when Waitress star Katharine McPhee welcomed her former costar Megan Hilty after the performance on Sunday, April 15. The pair starred in two seasons of the hit NBC show Smash, which followed the development of a Broadway musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe.
Inspired by Adrienne Shelly's 2007 motion picture, Waitress tells the story of Jenna, an expert pie maker in a small town who dreams of a way out of her loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town's new doctor may offer her a chance at a new life, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes to happiness. But Jenna must find the courage and strength within herself to rebuild her life.
Waitress features a score by Bareilles and a book by Jessie Nelson. Diane Paulus directs.
