Musings from Workhouse, CEO, Adam Nelson:
“When I founded Workhouse almost 25 years ago, I lifted the name from a defunct Tribeca theatre company that many of us had called home. As a once-upon-a-time-performer, it was there that I had the incredible fortune of knowing and working with the starlight known as Adrienne Shelly who became a friend. When the film documentary of her Broadway smash was selected to World Premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, I leapt at the chance to honor her theatrical heartbeat. Adrienne was a glow of goodness, and her masterwork, which has performed across the globe delighting audiences everywhere, still strikes a cord. Everyone who had the opportunity to engage her infectious energy knew her promise was palatial. She was just getting started. Tonight, we raised a glass in celebration of her greatness.”
The official World Premiere After Party for Waitress, The Musical! served as part of the Workhouse-conceived two weeks of Tribeca Film Festival events at Gigino Trattoria, our client’s iconic Tribeca restaurant owned by renowned filmmaker Bob Giraldi.
Gigino Trattoria has never been out of fashion. A Tribeca staple where the cinematic cool meet iconic Italian cuisine.
Waitress, the Musical - Live on Broadway! is a heartwarming story that follows the life of Jenna Hunterson (Sara Bareilles), a pie-maker and waitress stuck in an unfulfilling marriage in a small town.
Based on the beloved film of the same name, the musical adaptation was created with original music and lyrics by singer Sara Bareilles and captured audiences’ hearts during its run around the world. This spirited and visually stunning recording was filmed during a live Broadway performance of the musical, Waitress, the Musical - Live on Broadway!captures the essence of the original production beautifully.
