Brought to life by a ground-breaking all-female creative team, this irresistible new hit features original music and lyrics by 6-time Grammy® nominee Sara Bareilles (Brave, Love Song), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam) and direction by Tony Award® winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Finding Neverland).
WAITRESS tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and loveless marriage. A baking contest and the town’s new doctor may offer her a chance at a fresh start, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes for happiness. But Jenna must summon the strength and courage to rebuild her own life.
Katharine McPhee is set to star in the West End premiere of Waitress as Jenna Hunterson, opening at the Adelphi Theatre next year.
McPhee will make her West End debut in this production, reprising her Broadway performance as Jenna Hunterson after playing the role for a four month engagement in 2018. She came into the public eye when she competed on the television show American Idol in 2006, finishing in second place. After American Idol, she played Karen Cartwright in the musical television series Smash, featuring music and lyrics from Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, the musical creators behind Hairspray. Winning an award for best actress in a drama series for her leading performance, she performed alongside Broadway actors Megan Hilty and Christian Borle.
Don’t miss this uplifting musical celebrating friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.
