It has been announced that the London production of the hit Broadway production will partner with The Theatre Café which will make and bake fresh pies each night at the show.
It has been confirmed that audience members will be able to purchase Waitress pie jars in apple crumble, chocolate salted caramel or banoffee at the Adelphi Theatre when the show begins preview performances on the 8th February. The Waitress pie jars were originally created by Cute As Cake of New York.
The news was announced as rehearsals get underway for the production, which will officially open in London on the 7th March. The West End premiere of Sara Bareilles’ Waitress will star Kelly Agbowu, Laura Baldwin, Piers Bate, Nicole Raquel Dennis, Michael Hamway, Peter Hannah, David Hunter, Stephen Leask, Jack McBrayer, Chris McGuigan, Katharine McPhee, Olivia Moore, Nathaniel Morrison, Sarah O’Connor, Leanne Pinder, Shaun Prendergast, Charlotte Riby and Marisha Wallace.
Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage. Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as “The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie” and “Betrayed By My Eggs Pie.” When a baking contest in a nearby county — and a satisfying run-in with someone new — show Jenna a chance at a fresh start, she must find the courage to seize it. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.
The musical originally opened at Broadway’s Brooks Atkinson Theater in April 2016. It is based on the 2007 motion picture written by Adrienne Shelly and is the first Broadway musical in history to have four women in the four top creative team spots, featuring original music and lyrics by 6-time Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles(“Love Song”, “Brave”), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam), direction by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Finding Neverland) and choreography by Lorin Latarro.
Waitress will play at the Adelphi Theatre from the 8th February 2019. To book tickets click here or visit: See Tickets, Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk, From the Box Office, Last Minute.com, Love Theatre.com or Encore Tickets.
