About the show

Freshly baked for a US tour, six-time Grammy Award-nominee Sara Bareilles’ smash-hit Broadway musical Waitress arrives in Toronto. Garnering rave reviews from audiences and critics alike, the delicious production first opened at the Brooks Atkinson Theater in 2016, where it continues to play, before announcing a 2019 London premiere.

Based on Adrienne Shelly’s 2007 film of the same name, Waitress is the deeply moving story of Jenna, a waitress who yearns to bake and escape her small town and loveless marriage. When a baking contest arises close by, she is offered with the perfect opportunity. That is, until she discovers that she is no longer baking for one…

With a divine score by Sara Bareilles, songs include “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 is guaranteed to entertain even the sternest theatregoer.

Casting for the US tour includes Desi Oakley (Wicked, Les Miserables) as Jenna, Charity Angel Dawson as Becky, Lenne Klingaman as Dawn, Bryan Fenkart as Dr Pomatter, Nick Bailey as Earl, Larry Marshall as Joe, Ryan G. Dunkin as Cal and Jeremy Morse as Ogie.

With a book by Jessie Nelson, the production is directed by Diane Paulus (Pippin), with choreography by Lorin Latarro, set design by Scott Pask, costume design by Suttirat Anne Larlarb, lighting design by Ken Billington and sound design by Jonathan Deans.

Nominated for multiple Tony and Drama Desk Awards, Waitress is the sumptuous musical that opens up about love, loss and passion. Playing a delicious US tour, the show plays at Toronto’s Ed Mirvish Theatre for a limited season from 9 July to 18 August 2019.
