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.

Brought to life by a groundbreaking all-female creative team, this hilarious hit Broadway musical features original  music  and  lyrics  by  7-time  Grammy®  nominee  Sara  Bareilles  (“Brave,”  “Love  Song”),  a  book  by acclaimed  screenwriter  Jessie Nelson  (I  Am  Sam),  original  choreography  by  Lorin  Latarro  (Les  Liaisons Dangereuses, Waiting For Godot), recreated by tour choreographer Abbey O’Brien and original direction by Tony Award® winner Diane Paulus (Hair, Pippin), recreated by tour director Susanna Wolk.
