Waitress has all the right ingredients
Waitress, based on the 2007 indie classic of the same name, hit the spot on Broadway and has been serving up a slice of musical delight at the London's Adelphi Theatre starting in February 2019. Jenna doesn’t have much going for her, she doesn’t mind her job as a waitress at the local diner but it isn’t going anywhere. Her relationship with her husband Earl is loveless and abusive. To escape it all she bakes, her pies are the talk of the town, but soon her pies aren’t the only thing about Jenna that have tongues wagging. Shortly after discovering she is pregnant, one of the last things she wants to be, Jenna begins an affair with her new OBGYN, Dr Pomatter, who is also married. Jenna decides that she needs a way out and a pie baking contest and its grand prize is her way to get a new lease on life, but things don’t go exactly to plan.
Waitress cast and creatives
Waitress currently stars Lucie Jones (Les Misérables, Ghost the Musical, Legally Blonde) as Jenna.
