The full casting is to be announced soon.


Waitress, presented by Barry and Fran Weissler and David Ian, is based on the 2007 movie written by Adrienne Shelley.


Music and lyrics are written by GRAMMY award-winning, singer-songwriter sensation Sara Bareilles, who appeared on the Graham Norton TV show, performing the hit song from the show She Used To Be Mine.


With a book by Jessie Nelson, direction by Tony-award winner Diane Paulus and choreography by Lorin Latarro, Waitress has garnered multiple awards and nominations in both America and the UK, receiving acclaim from both audiences and critics alike.


Waitress opened on Broadway on April 24, 2016 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, where it ran until 5th January 2020.


The show celebrated its official opening night at the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End on 7 March 2019. The North American tour of Waitress is currently on hold due to COVID-19.


It tells the story of Jenna, an expert pie maker in a small town, who dreams of a way out of her loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a chance at a new life, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes to happiness. But Jenna must find the courage and strength within herself to rebuild her life. This beautiful musical celebrates friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.

Book by Jessie Nelson

Music and lyrics by Grammy Award-winner Sara Bareilles

Waitress was originally produced by Barry and Fran Weissler and Norton and Elayne Herrick. The tour is produced by Barry and Fran Weissler and David Ian Productions.
