A waitress at Joe’s Diner, Jenna learns about a pie-baking contest that could change her life and offer the chance she needs to escape her husband. Based on the movie of the same name, Sarah Bareilles transformed this critical darling into an inspiring and uplifting musical as refreshing as a slice of marshmallow mermaid pie.
