Jessie Mueller Talks Waitress With Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb

Mueller appeared on ”Today” this morning.

Tony winner Jessie Mueller hit the small screen on June 3 to discuss her 2016 Tony-nominated performance in Sara Bareilles and Jessie Nelson’s Broadway musical Waitress.

Mueller joined Today hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb to share details on her performance in the production, which is inspired by Adrienne Shelley’s 2007 motion picture. Mueller plays Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker who is stuck in a small town and a loveless marriage. When a baking contest in a nearby county offers her a chance at escape, Jenna must weigh her commitments against a rare shot at freedom and recognition.

The show’s company also includes Tony nominees Nick Cordero, Keala Settle, and Christopher Fitzgerald, along with Kimiko Glenn, Drew Gehling, Dakin Matthews, Eric Anderson, Charity Angél Dawson, Jeremy Morse, Stephanie Torns, Thay Floyd, Molly Hager, Aisha Jackson, Ragan Pharris, Ryan Vasquez, Max Kumangai, and Henry Gottfried.
