NEW YORK (AP) — The new Broadway musical "Waitress" is packing up its pies and hitting the road.

Producers said a national tour of the show with songs by Sara Bareilles will kick off at Cleveland's Playhouse Square in October 2017. Other dates and cities will be announced later.

The musical opened Sunday to solid reviews. It is adapted from a 2007 film starring Keri Russell about a waitress and pie-maker trapped in a small-town diner and a loveless marriage.
