About the show

Six-time Grammy Award-nominee Sara Bareilles brings her smash-hit Broadway musical Waitress to the West End, transferring to London’s Adelphi Theatre. Garnering rave reviews from audiences and critics alike, the delicious production originally opened at the Brooks Atkinson Theater in 2016, where it continues to play to packed-out audiences. Catch the show at the Adelphi Theatre from 8 February.

Based on Adrienne Shelly’s 2007 film, Waitress is the sumptuous story of Jenna, a pie-maker who longs to escape her small town and loveless marriage. When a baking contest arises nearby, she is presented with the perfect opportunity. That is, until she finds out that she is no longer baking for one…

With songs such as “Bad Idea”, “It Only Takes a Taste”, “You Matter to Me” and “She Used to Be Mine”, this emotional, heart-warming and endearingly funny musical features music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles, who is the popular writer of songs such as “Love Song” and “Brave”.

Broadway star Jessie Mueller originally starred as Jenna, with a cast including Drew Gehling, Kimiko Glenn, Keala Settle and award-winner Christopher Fitzgerald. Since then, various stars have taken on the lead role, including Katherine McPhee, Betsy Wolfe and Sara Bareilles herself.

For The West End run, Lucie Jones (Legally Blonde) currently plays the starring role of Jenna. Joining her on stage are Strictly Come Dancing star and YouTuber Joe Sugg as Ogie, Eugenius! alumnus Laura Baldwin as Dawn, Marisha Wallace as Becky, Andrew Boyer as Old Joe, Tamlyn Henderson as Earl and David Hunter playing Dr. Pomatter. The part of Lulu will be shared by Arabella Duffy and Fifi Christophers. The cast also features Kelly Agbowu, Cindy Belliot, Leanne Pinder, Piers Bate, Nathaniel Morrison, Michael Hamway, Stephen Leask, Sarah O'Connor, Chris McGuigan, Olivia Moore and Charlotte Riby.

With a book by Jessie Nelson, the production is billed to be the first West End musical to feature an all-female creative team, with direction by Diane Paulus (Pippin) and choreography by Lorin Latarro (Les Liaisons Dangereuses).

Nominated for multiple Tony and Drama Desk Awards, Waitress is the divine musical about love, loss and passion. Receiving its UK premiere at the Adelphi Theatre, the show runs from 8 February 2019, with a press night on 7 March 2019.
