The Broadway musical, “Waitress” is coming to Manila, courtesy of the Atlantis Theatrical Entertainment Group, and we can’t be more thrilled! If you’re wondering why, we’ll break it down for you.

1. It hits home.

Originally a film, “Waitress” tells the story of Jenna, a pie maker and waitress at a diner, who is stuck in an abusive marriage, meets someone new, and yearns for a fresh start. Let’s not get into the details, but “Waitress” certainly hits home portraying love and life—two things anyone can relate to.

2. Music and lyrics are by Sara Bareilles.

Ever sang to “Love Song” or “Brave?” We’re in for a whole lot of 6-time Grammy nominee, Sara Bareilles, who wrote and scored the music and lyrics of “Waitress.”

3. Joanna Ampil is Jenna.

Acclaimed musical theatre and film actress, Joanna Ampil is playing Jenna! She has performed in a good number of West End musicals including Miss Saigon and Les Misérables, not to mention she won Best Actress at the 43rd Metro Manila Film Festival for her role as Candida in the 2017 film “Ang Larawan.” A powerhouse is formed as she is joined by Bituin Escalante and Maronne Cruz who will be playing Becky and Dawn respectively.

4. You can get premium tickets FREE!

Excitement only grows as we’re giving away tickets to premium seats at “Waitress,” to lucky winners of the Show and Stay weekend promo. Everyone who books a weekend stay for as low as PHP 4,000 nett between 15 September and 28 October gets a shot at those free tickets, as we’re picking 12 lucky winners who will be receiving 2 “Waitress” tickets each!

5. Everybody’s a winner.

In partnership with Atlantis, we’re giving all hotel guests staying between 11 September and 17 November an exclusive 20% discount on “Waitress” tickets. When you get to experience a comfortable stay paired with excellent service, plus a valuable discount on a much-awaited Broadway musical, it’s definitely a win!

  • COZY AND HOMEY. This was our 6th or 7th stay and the staff is still very accommodating. The location is strategic being right beside convenience stores, mall, and restaurants… I can say we plan to make it a habit to greet the new year here.”

  • OUTSTANDING AND FRIENDLY SERVICE. The service at the facility is outstanding from arrival to departure. Any thing you ask for is done promptly and with a smile. The gym is pretty good with all the requirements of a hotel gym, with sauna, personal trainers and group classes.”

  • COMFORTABLE HOME AWAY FROM HOME. I stayed in the Discovery suites hotel for 7 weeks in March and April while in Manila for work. And it was very easy for me to start calling it home after a few days! The location is great – podium mall across the street, Starbucks next door and across the street, megamall and Robinson’s galleria only a couple of blocks away.”
