Jisel Soleil Ayon (Jenna) is making her national tour debut in Waitress! Her other credits include: Evita (Evita), The Addams Family (Wednesday), In the Heights (Daniela), Lizzie (Ovation Award), and most recently Les Misérables (Cosette) and Guys and Dolls (Sarah  Brown) at Hale Center Theatre. More about Jisel here.

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.” Brought to life by a groundbreaking all-female creative team, this hilarious hit Broadway musical features original music and lyrics by Grammy® Award-winner 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.
