When Waitress was released in 2007, you’d have never expected that this little indie flick would be much more than a cult hit. But what better for a musical adaptation than a dramedy centered on love, new beginnings and pie?

Featuring music by singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles, Waitress, as its title implies, centers on young waitress and pie-baker extraordinaire Jenna. Trapped in a controlling marriage, Jenna discovers she’s pregnant, much to her dismay. With help from her friends, she seeks to enter a pie contest with a high reward, but surprising love connections and interference from her abusive husband throw a wrench into the mix.

The musical certainly captures the original essence of Adrienne Shelly’s film script, which shines a light on the complexities of domestic violence, and Bareilles’ music enhances a feel-good story exploring love, friendship and baking.

$40-$150, 7:30 pm Tue Jan. 8-Thu Jan. 10, 8pm Fri Jan. 11, 2pm & 8pm Sat Jan. 12, 2pm & 7:30pm Sun Jan. 13, the Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com.
