Sara Bareilles is scoring a new musical based on the film Waitress, which is set to debut this August at Harvard’s American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Billboard reports that the production will be directed by Diane Paulus, the artistic director who has also helmed the recent revival of Pippin and the new Finding Neverland. The original film, which debuted in 2007, starred Keri Russell as a waitress who is a genius at making pie but gets pregnant with the child of her abusive husband. However, she has a change of heart about having the baby when she has an affair with her handsome OBGYN, played by Nathan Fillion.
