8. Waitress
This Sara Bareilles-scored 2015 adaptation of the winsome indie movie about a pregnant piemaker is still going strong on Broadway and it launched a national tour last fall. The Broadway version is currently starring American Idol alum and TV star Katherine McPhee, but the charm and poignancy of the story and the beautiful, wistful music and lyrics make this a winner anywhere it plays.

Where to see it:
Broadway: The Brooks-Atkinson Theatre, NYC, ongoing; get tickets here
