Why See Waitress?

Musicals

If Only life were as easy as pie

Katharine McPhee is your Jenna until 15 June!

Broadway's sweetest treat arrives, bringing its delicious confection of peppy songs, romance, and dramedy to the Adelphi Theatre this spring. Adapted from the beloved 2007 indie film by Adrienne Shelly and with an all-female creative team led by a bubbly pop score from singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles, it's a life-affirming feel-good hit - the perfect thing to chase the winter cobwebs away. If you loved Beautiful - The Carole King Musical, you're certain to love Waitress!

Opening across the pond in 2016,the show has proved a huge hit with audiences and was nominated for four Tony Awards in 2016 before heading out on a huge national tour.

What is the story of Waitress?

Suffocated by both the small Southern town where she lives, and her controlling husband Earl, Jenna longs for escape. Her only solace comes from working in the local diner, where she can practice her passion for baking. Jenna's crumbly pastries and crinkly crusts are renowned the town over, and by a stroke of luck, they might just offer her an escape route! A pie-baking contest is announced in a nearby town, with a potentially life-changing cash prize for first place. Jenna realises this may be a once in a lifetime opportunity and is determined to grab it with both hands!

What we thought

EMOTIONAL Musical dazzler

The smell of baked treats wafts through the foyer of the Adelphi Theatre as Waitress becomes the best smelling show in the West End!

London is being blessed with an influx of great Broadway musicals this year. Making history in New York with an all-female creative team (with the score written by Grammy winner Sara Bareilles), Waitress has now arrived in London!

it takes all of ten seconds to be in its generous embrace...It calls for quicksilver, charismatic acting and singing. It gets it from this versatile cast. It's an evening that, frankly, gets everything right.
