Having ‘opened up’ to critical acclaim earlier this year, there’s now a new crew serving Joe’s Diner in Waitress. And it’s a starry one: Ashley Roberts, Blake Harrison and Lucie Jones have all taken on new roles this week in the smash-hit musical.

The show has recently extended its booking period at the Adelphi Theatre up to 7 December, as audiences just can’t get enough of the heart-warming story of love and friendship. Take a first look at the new star trio in action below.

Ashley is playing the role of Dawn, and Lucie leads the show as Jenna. And although Lucie has covered her new role on-stage recently, former Pussycat Doll Ashley is making her West End debut. Throwing his comic prowess into the mix is The Inbetweeners’ star Blake Harrison, who’s also started this week in the role of Ogie.

Waitress uses an original score by 7-time Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles to tell the tale of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who wistfully dreams of a happier life. But the arrival of a hot new doctor – and a little fortune – might be about to change her life’s recipe completely.

Waitress is also participating in Kids Week; throughout August, a child aged 16 or under can go free when accompanied by an adult paying full price. Adults can also purchase up to two extra children’s tickets at half price, and there are no booking fees to pay.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
