    Waitress the Musical

    Featuring Erich Bergen


    Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage. Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as “The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie” and “Betrayed By My Eggs Pie.” When a baking contest in a nearby county — and a satisfying encounter with someone new — show Jenna a chance at a fresh start, she must find the courage to seize it. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.

    Brought to life by a groundbreaking, all-female creative team, this Tony Award®-nominated hit features original music and lyrics by 7-time Grammy® nominee Sara Bareilles (“Love Song,” “Brave”), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam) and direction by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Finding Neverland).

    WAITRESS is a little slice of heaven!” says Entertainment Weekly, and is “sweet, sassy and passionate,” according to New York Magazine. Don’t miss this uplifting and hilarious musical.

    Our SAAGNY team, Michael Reisbaum, Rick Brenner, Michele Jennrich, and Brian Deissroth, represented SAAGNY in Washington D.C. at Legislative Education and Action Day (L.E.A.D.) for the past two days.  They participated in L.E.A.D. which delivers the promotional products industry's message to Capitol Hill.  Over 70 representatives from PPAI, SAAGNY, and other regionals  participated in more than 300 meetings with Congressional officials.

    The talking points for these meetings included:

    • Tax Reform and its Impact on Small Business
    • Role of Independent Contractors Within the Promotional Products Industry
    • Effective Use of Promotional Products
    • Global Value Chains - Adding a human face to the Promotional Products Industry by Explaining to Congress that even though many of our industry's products are imported, once these products are brought to the U.S. they are decorated and sold by American workers, and used to promote American goods and services  
    • Creating Awareness and Support of the Promotional Products Industry

    Each year, industry professionals travel to Washington D.C. to educate members of Congress and their legislative staff about the effectiveness of promotional products and the strength of our $24 billion industry that employs nearly half a million Americans.   

    This participation is vital to the preservation and growth of our industry.  While we know not everyone can participate in Washington D.C., you can support the efforts of L.E.A.D. by reaching out to your elected officials that will support L.E.A.D.’s efforts in D.C.  Please click here for further information on how to reach your legislative official.

    Tina, The Tina Turner Musical

    Tina follows Tina Turner from her humble beginnings in Nutbush, Tennessee, to her transformation into the global queen of rock 'n' roll. Born Anna Mae Bullock in 1939, Turner rose to fame in the 1960s alongside her husband Ike. She later revealed in her autobiography that she had suffered domestic abuse at his hands—they separated in 1976 and divorced two years later. Turner later made a massive comeback in the 1980s. The Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll has sold 180 million records worldwide and been honored with 11 Grammy Awards.  Tina: The Tina Turner Musical has found its Broadway home. Direct from an Olivier-nominated London run, the hit bio-musical will arrive at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on October 12 ahead of a November 7 opening night. As previously announced, Tony nominee Adrienne Warren will reprise her Olivier-nominated turn in the title role.

    Tina features a book by Katori Hall and direction by Phyllida Lloyd, with choreography by Anthony van Laast, set and costume design by Mark Thompson, musical supervision by Nicholas Skilbec, lighting by Bruno Poet, sound by Nevin Steinberg and orchestrations by Ethan Popp.

    Distributor sales accelerated at a rapid pace in 2018, posting annual growth of 6.27 percent and pushing industry sales to a record $24.7 billion for the year, according to PPAI's Sales Volume Survey. The Association's survey, an annual estimate of U.S. distributor promotional products sales, registered particularly robust performance among the industry's smaller distributors—sales under $2.5 million—who experienced a 12.27 percent increase over 2017. Larger companies in the survey saw only a 1.92 percent increase in sales.

    The industry-wide survey, conducted this spring and reflecting the experiences of 24,240 distributor companies, also highlighted the online channel's continued growth as a share of promotional products sales. Online sales represented 25.3 percent of the sales volume in 2018, up 2.1 points from 23.2 percent in 2017. Total online sales grew 16.2 percent to $6.27 million from $5.4 million in 2017.

    PPAI's survey also registered a 10.6 percent year-over-year increase in sales from non-industry providers in 2018. On average, distributors earned $3.75 billion in sales of products sourced from non-industry providers, or 15.2 percent of the total sales volume.

    PPAI has collected and released industry sales data since 1965 and maintains an extensive industry sales information library. Its annual distributor sales survey reflects actual sales data reported by U.S. distributor companies and is considered the most definitive and comprehensive of its kind in the industry.
