Avenue 5 actor Andrew Boyer joins cast of Waitress The Musical

Andrew Boyer is set to step into the role of Old Joe in Waitress The Musical, effectively replacing original London cast member Shaun Prendergast. Boyer's most notable stage credits include The Music Man and Gypsy on Broadway and the UK nationwide tours of Shawshank Redemption and Of Mice and Men. The actor most recently wrapped up filming for the all-new HBO series Avenue 5, a sci-fi comedy that comes after the overwhelming success of the network's Chernobyl miniseries and the Game of Thrones finale.

Andrew Boyer will begin performing in the role on Monday, 12 August after Prendergast takes his final bow on Saturday, 10 August. He will join current cast members Lucie Jones as Jenna, Marisha Wallace as Becky, Blake Harrison as Ogie, David Hunter as Dr. Pomatter, and Peter Hannah as Earl.

Laura Baldwin will return to the cast as Dawn alongside Boyer on Monday, 12 August.

About the Sara Bareilles musical Waitress

Waitress made theatre history when it became the first Broadway musical to have all women in the top four creative team positions and it features original music and lyrics by Grammy Award-nominated artist Sara Bareilles, direction by Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus (Finding Neverland, Pippin), a book by Jessie Nelson, and choreography by Lorin Latarro.

The musical will continue its Broadway run at New York's Brooks Atkinson Theatre until 5 January 2020, when it will be replaced by the Broadway transfer of SIX The Musical. The West End production is booking at London's Adelphi Theatre through January as well in an open-ended run.

Jenna works at Old Joe's diner and her talent for baking delicious pies serves as a form of escapism from her abusive husband. Things get a bit complicated when she discovers she has a bun in the oven, but at least she has her friends Becky and Dawn by her side. Will the prize money at the local pie-baking contest be Jenna's recipe for a new and happier life?
