For its few inconsistencies and small things that don't totally work, "Waitress" is still a terrific show. New musicals are made or broken by their score and it seems for every "Hamilton" and "Dear Evan Hansen" there are other shows whose music is sort of D.O.A. So it's a joy to experience a delicious musical you want to rush home and listen to the soundtrack for, bake the words into your brain, and spend hours in your car tasting the sweet lyrics and singing along.
