Waitress the Musical composer and lyricist Sara Bareilles is now starring in the West End production of her hit musical at the Adelphi Theatre… and Gavin Creel is here too!
Grammy award winner and composer Sara Bareilles debuts in the West End reprising the role of Jenna that she had already played for two runs on Broadway in 2017 and 2018. For the special occasion, she brought along her Broadway co-star and friend, Tony-winner Gavin Creel as Dr. Pomatter. The pair started performances on 27 January and will perform for a six-weeks run until 7 March 2020.
A Brief History of the Waitress Musical
Waitress The Musical is based on the 2007 film with Keri Russel and follows Jenna, a creative pie-maker who invents new weirdly-named pies according to what’s going on in her life, as she carries through an unwanted pregnancy in an unsatisfying marriage. Her new gynecologist is Dr. Pomatter, an equally clumsy and attractive man who really loves her pies and their maker, and a backing contest is about to be held in a nearby county. Will this give Jenna the strength to find a new recipe for her personal happiness?
Waitress The Musical officially opened at the Adelphi Theatre in March 2019 to enthusiastic reviews and will play in the West End until 4th July 2020 before embarking on a UK Tour! When Bareilles and Creel will end their engagement, the roles of Jenna and Dr. Pomatter will be reprised by Lucie Jones and David Hunter on 9 March.
