The Tony-nominated musical by Sara Bareilles has also recently extended its booking period to 19 October at the Adelphi Theatre.
Based on the 2007 motion picture written by Adrienne Shelly, Waitress is the first Broadway and West End musical in history to have four women in the four top creative team spots. The show 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?), direction by Tony Award winnerDiane Paulus (?Pippin?, ?Finding Neverland?) and choreography by Lorin Latarro. Waitress opened on 24 April 2016 at Broadway's Brooks Atkinson Theater, is currently touring the US and has also announced it will have its Australian premiere in 2020 at the Sydney Lyric Theatre.
Waitress stars Katharine McPhee (Smash) as Jenna, Emmy-nominee Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) as Ogie, Marisha Wallace as Becky, Laura Baldwin as Dawn, Peter Hannah as Earl, David Hunter as Dr. Pomatter and Shaun Prendergast as Old Joe.
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 run-in 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.
Waitress also recently held the first of its "Cast Album Karaoke" nights in London, at which theatre lovers who have always dreamt of singing on the West End stage can make their dream a reality. The next karaoke night will be held post-show on Monday 18 March. For the chance to sing one minute of any song from the show - live on stage and accompanied by the show's musical director Katharine Woolley - interested audience members just need to sign up in the theatre before the performance.
On its Broadway opening, Waitress was nominated for four Outer Critics' Circle Awards, including Outstanding New Broadway Musical; two Drama League Award Nominations, including Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Musical; six Drama Desk Nominations, including Outstanding Musical; and four Tony Award Nominations, including Best Musical.
