Williams, Creel, and Bareilles have all previously appeared in the hit Broadway production of Waitress and have joined the UK production as part of the show's grand finale. Bareilles and Creel were originally meant to complete their runs today but recently extended their roles through to 21 March 2020.

The musical features a book by Jessie Nelson, choreography by Lorin Latarro, and direction by Tony Award-winning director Diane Paulus. The recently announced UK and Ireland tour of the show will open in Dublin in November.
