College Night package includes dinner and a show 

The hit Broadway musical “Waitress” made its first off-broadway debut at Cleveland’s Playhouse Square’s Connor Palace on Oct. 17 and will continue to run through Nov. 1.

As part of the release, the Keybank Broadway Series and Playhouse Square have prepared a special College Night on Oct. 31 where students can get discounted tickets for the show.

As part of this package, students will be able to attend a pre-show dinner at Hofbrauhaus, including a meal and drink. Students that are interested can contact Beth Baker at

Based on the book by Jessie Nelson, the show has received a lot of attention for its popular musical score and all-female creative team.

Directed by Tony winner Diane Paulus, the show includes Tony-nominated music by Grammy-award nominated pop singer Sara Bareilles, including various songs from Bareilles such as “Brave” and “Love Song.”

“Waitress” tells the story of a young woman named Jenna, who works at a diner and spends her days making her famous pies. The plot picks up when one day she wants to enter a baking contest to escape her small-town life, but not without some unexpected obstacles.

After opening for the first time on Broadway in April 2016, “Waitress” received rave reviews from critics for the upbeat musical score and endearing characters.

Entertainment Weekly wrote, “Waitress is a sweet slice of a show” and New York Times called it “a pleasant and polished but weightless musical comedy (that) rises to transporting heights, and sweeps up your heart along with it.”
