#TBT: Katherine McPhee Makes Her Broadway Debut in WAITRESS
Katharine McPhee is heading back to the diner! As BroadwayWorld previously reported, the star is making her return to the role of Jenna in Waitress for the show's final weeks on Broadway. To get ready for the return of this queen of kindness and goodness, we're looking back at our chat with her and co-star Drew Gehling just days before opening up in the show in April 2018. Check it out with the video below!
Now in its fourth year on Broadway, Waitress tells the story of 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 "a??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 opened April 24, 2016 at Broadway's Brooks Atkinson Theatre (256 West 47th Street). Based upon the 2007 motion picture written by Adrienne Shelly, Waitress is the first Broadway musical in history to have four women in the four top creative team spots, with a book by Jessie Nelson, a score by six-time Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles, choreography by Lorin Latarro and direction by Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus.Get the best prices on tickets to Waitress on TodayTix - click here.
