Casting - London West End - Musicals
Sara Bareilles will reunite with Gavin Creel to make her West End debut in Waitress from 27 January to 7 March 2020 for a strictly limited six-week run.
International star Sara Bareilles who wrote the music and lyrics for hit musical Waitress, will be making her West End debut next year taking on the role of Jenna in the show.
She will be reunited with Olivier and Tony Award®-winning actor Gavin Creel, (Book of Mormon & Mary Poppins) who joins the cast alongside her as Dr Pomatter.
Sara and Gavin are scheduled to join the cast for a strictly limited, six-week run, from Mon 27 January 2020 after which time Lucie Jones and David Hunter will return to the roles of Jenna and Dr Pomatter from 9 March.
Inspired by Adrienne Shelly's beloved film, 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 in a nearby county 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.
