This was my first time seeing a show since the global pandemic, and it was a welcome break. It was also my first time seeing Waitress, but I've heard a lot about it from watching Colleen Ballinger's Youtube channel. She had a chance to place Dawn in this production a few years back, so I was very excited to see what all the hype was about.
While it wasn't as emotionally gripping as other shows I've seen (Les Miserables, Wicked etc) it had a good mixture of comedy and gravity. It was a tale of a woman stuck in an abusive relationship, finding herself pregnant, trying to find a way to escape the life she seemed trapped in. It was well done, and I really enjoyed it.
