About the Broadway and West End hit Waitress

Waitress set itself apart before even opening by having the first all-female-led creative team which includes a book by Jessie Nelson, direction by Tony Award-winner Dianne Paulus, choreography by Lorin Latarro and, of course, music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles. Waitress is based on the film of the same name written by Adrienne Shelly. The show opened on Broadway at the Brook Atkinson Theatre in April 2016 and opened in the West End (in previews) on 8 February 2019.

Waitress tickets starring Sara Bareilles are still available!

The West End has been granted an extra two weeks to catch Sara Bareilles and Gavin Creel in Waitress at the Adelphi Theatre, so be sure to make the most of this fantastic opportunity. Also, don’t forget that Bareilles and Creel will be hosting cast karaoke on 24 February; giving you the chance to sing with them on stage!
