I like Waitress, but I find the Chris Fitzergarld song and scenes cringeworthy.
I thought so too. His scenes and the first song seemed to go on and on forever. The audience went crazy over it though. Lots of laughing and cheering through it.
Now I've grown accustomed to listen to it on the cast recording. The lyrics are quite funny. But it was just too much on stage.
Despite that I loved the show. Sara Bareilles was great. And I have to admit I cried all the way from when she had the baby to the end... ^^* But this has happened while watching the movie too, so I kind of expected it.
