'Waitress,' The Musical Serves Its First Slice Of National Tour Pie In Boise

Jeffrey Mosier Photography

Waitress, the smash musical currently playing on Broadway, is about to launch a new North American tour, and its first stop is Boise's Morrison Center. The show, featuring a score penned by pop star Sara Bareilles, stars Bailey McCall who pours her heart into her pies, such as "The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie" and "My Husband is a Jerk Chicken Pot Pie."

In between all rehearsals (and a fair amount of baking), McCall visited with Morning Edition host George Prentice to talk about the show, her adoration for Sara Bareilles and a waitiress-themed quiz.

"People come to the show thinking it's going to be a lot of fun, and it's all of those things but the story has so much heart."
