Sara Bareilles is set to join the London West End cast of Waitress in the lead role of Jenna!

Waitress is the story of Jenna, a young woman who works in a diner and is stuck in an unhappy marriage. She finds joy in baking pies, experimenting with their flavors and giving them creative names. When Jenna finds herself pregnant, she realizes she wants more from life. An encounter with a handsome doctor and a pie baking contest with a large cash prize seem to be her chance for something new.

Bareilles originally performed the role on Broadway in 2017. Gavin Creel starred alongside her as Dr Pomatter and will also be joining her in the West End. The pair will be performing for a limited six week run from January 27 to March 7. From March 9 Lucie Jones and David Hunter will be returning in their roles.

Waitress is being performed at the Adelphi Theatre in London and tickets are available here for bookings up to March 28.

Lynette has been a lifelong nerd and over the last few years finally learned to let her freak flag fly. She likes to dip her toe into almost every fandom but is particularly passionate about Supernatural, Stranger Things, Marvel and Disney. When she isn’t binge watching programs, she loves to swim, sing and (true to her Ravenclaw nature) read. Lynette joined the Nerds and Beyond staff in 2019 and loves sharing her nerdy knowledge with the world.
