Katharine McPhee stepped into the role of Jenna in “Waitress” last night at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, making her Broadway debut. The Sara Bareilles-scored musical, which is based on the 2007 film, follows a small-town waitress who buries her feelings in baking pies. When she discovers she’s pregnant by her abusive husband, she finds that her pie-making skills might be her ticket out.
