Waitress

UK PREMIERE ANNOUNCED FOR THE HIT BROADWAY MUSICAL, WAITRESS

Waitress Theatre Breaks for the Tony Award-nominated smash hit musical, Waitress, come to London’s West End from February 2019.

Waitress 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 American musical celebrates friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.

Based on the 2007 motion picture written by Adrienne Shelly, 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.
