The Adelphi Theatre serves up the official UK premiere of Waitress. This smash-hit musical, currently running for a third year on Broadway, is based on the film by Adrienne Shelley. The show has garnered die-hard fans all over the world thanks to its beautiful soundtrack and unforgettable characters.

Waitress follows Jenna, a top-notch pie maker trapped in a loveless marriage. Her prospects seem about to change when she learns of a baking contest in another county and meets the town’s new doctor. But does Jenna have the courage and resilience to grasp happiness? A celebration, of true friendship, motherhood and – of course – pies, this show has all the right ingredients.

Following its Broadway opening, Waitress received a glittering host of nominations for four Outer Critics’ Circle Awards, two Drama League Awards, six Drama Desk Nominations and four Tony Award Nominations.

Lucie Jones (Legally Blonde, RENT) stars as Jenna, alongside Hannah Tointon (The Inbetweeners) as Dawn, Marisha Wallace (Dreamgirls) as Becky, Joel Montague (Falsettos, School of Rock) as Ogie, David Hunter (Once, Kinky Boots) as Dr. Pomatter, Tamlyn Henderson (Mamma Mia) as Earl, Andrew Boyer (Of Mice and Men) as Old Joe, and Richard Taylor Woods (9 to 5, Motown) as Cal.

For just six weeks between January 27th and March 7th, writer and composer Sara Barreilles will join the Adelphi Theatre cast to play Jenna. She will be joined by Gavin Creel, reprising his Broadway role of Dr. Pomatter. On the same date, Evelyn Hoskins (CarrieAssassins) will take over the role of Dawn.

The London show boasts an all-female creative team, the first such instance in any West End musical. It features a book by Jessie Nelson, the prolific American film producer, director, and writer. The music and lyrics have been written by six-time Grammy Award-nominee Sara Bareilles. Choreography is courtesy of Lorin Latarro, whose credits include Waiting For Godot and Curious Incident Of The Dog in The Night-Time. Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus directs.

The production also features a partnership with the Theatre Cafe, baking three varieties of pies which will be sold to the audiences during the interval - yum!
