The musical begins performances at the West End’s Adelphi Theatre on 8 February, ahead of an official opening night on 7 March.

Waitress is playing its third hit year on Broadway, where it continues to tell the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of life outside of her small town – and tumultuous marriage. But that chance may just arrive…

On its Broadway opening, Waitress was nominated for four Outer Critics’ Circle Awards, also garnering two Drama League Award Nominations, six Drama Desk Nominations, and four Tony Award Nominations, including Best Musical.
