I thought he was wonderful in Wicked, and a sweetheart at the stage door.

She's 47, and your point? Carmen was 45 duringBright Star she and convincingly played a teenager. Sara is almost 40, should that stop her from playing Jenna?
"

The actress playing Jenna has to look like she could convincingly have just gotten pregnant for the first time. And that's to say nothing of how age affects how the audience might feel about her choices, relationships, etc.

I didn’t mean to imply he would be anything less than wonderful. I just know Broadway can be unforgiving to pop stars especially boy band members. Sounds like he has a lot of goodwill going into the show. Good!

BTW I loved Jason Mraz in Waitress (I know he’s not a boy band-er, but I went in with low expectations and they were totally exceed; I’d gladly see him on Broadway again) and Ricky Martin in Evita (I know it’s a polarizing opinion, but I liked his performance a lot). 

P.S. Autocorrect originally had changed the above to: “Ricky Martin In Elvira.”  For some reason, I can’t stop laughing.

Sara has no scheduled days off. Plus she has excellent attendance. I think she was really sick during her last run and missed maybe three performances? But if she's healthy she's on.

If you go to Ticketmaster, it will say Waitress with Sara Bareilles if she is scheduled to be in. I think she missed 4 1/2 shows last time. She left at intermission Thursday and didnt return until Sunday night. Again that was due to illness.

As they will have joined only a few days earlier, I think you’ll be fine.

I'm seeing NKOTB for the zillionth time this spring, so it would be sort of ridiculous for me to do this too, lol.

Thanks for the head's up! Should I try for the rush line for Saturday 1/12 for $40 Orch seats and risk being late for BroadwayCon or should I just buy the $49 ticket now?

Really? I mean it's up to you if you want buy a ticket or not...but seeing someone in a band is completely different than seeing someone act/sing in a Broadway show playing someone other than himself.  Plus you get to see a show. So I don't see the ridiculous aspect of this.  Again..your choice.

Has there been any word on how long Chris Fitzgerald is staying with the show, and who the next "Joe" (or "Jo" ) will be after June Squibb?

Unless they’re getting a name who can sell tickets as the next Jenna, I’d quite like Stephanie Torns to be given the role for a few months, rather than just as the interim Jenna. When you think about it, she played Jenna for 3+ months last year which is kinda insane for an understudy when you think about it .... 1 month after Sara’s stint before Kat Mcaphee joined; 2 weeks between Kat McPhee’s initial stint ending and her rejoining; 1 week when Kat McPhee was off because her dad passed away; 3 weeks before Nicolette Robinson joined; and 1 month before Sara joined again! I’ve probably missed some dates also!!

Torns was my Jenna when I saw Waitress in November 2017 and she was phenomenal. But at this point in its run, Waitress box office receipts reveal it needs a star attraction as Jenna to sell tickets at a profitable rate. If it is going to close anyway, they should give it to Torns. She has earned it. But if they want to keep it running, theyll need another Jenna that can attract tourists and repeat visits.

Yeah, I fear this year might be it’s last. I know Sara is badging her appearance as a year 3 special treat thing, but we all know she came in to give the box office a needed boost. I just can’t see who is a big enough name going forward that would not only be available but also has the chops for the role of Jenna. I mean, maybe Lea Michele (even though I know that might not be well received here lol) could bring people in, but she doesn’t seem interested right now in taking on a broadway role. Kat McPhee is tied up with the London production, otherwise I coulda seen her coming back for another stint. Anna Kendrick apparently pulled out according to sources here. Who else is there? The longer the show runs and the less buzzy is becomes as a result, the harder it also is to attract the big names. 

Does anyone know how expensive Waitress is to run? I can’t imagine, relatively speaking, it is one of the more expensive broadway productions?
