It has been announced that the London production of Waitress has cast its youngest cast members.
The youngest members of the production who will be sharing the role of Lulu will be Fifi Christophers and Arabella Duffy who will be making their West End debuts.
They join the previously announced Katharine McPhee (Smash) as Jenna, Emmy-nominee Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) as Ogie, Marisha Wallace as Becky, Laura Baldwinas Dawn, Peter Hannah as Earl, David Hunter as Dr. Pomatter and Shaun Prendergast as Old Joe.
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.
Waitress is currently playing its third year on Broadway and features 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.
The musical has been nominated for numerous awards including four Outer Critics’ Circle Awards,two Drama League Award Nominations, six Drama Desk Nominations and four Tony Award Nominations, including Best Musical.
