If you’ve ever stood in front of the mirror, hairbrush in hand, pretending to belt out your favourite number on the West End stage, we’ve got some VERY exciting news for you.
Adding to the excitement of Waitress coming to Theatreland next February, is the announcement of the first ever “Cast Album Karaoke” nights on Tuesday 19 February and Monday 18 March.
Taking place after those respective shows, theatre fans can sing one minute of any song from the show live on the Adelphi Theatre’s stage – and to top it off, you’ll be accompanied by the show’s musical director Katharine Woolley, so you’ll be getting the proper West End star treatment!
If you’re interested in treading the boards and channelling your inner Jenna, Becky, Dawn or Dr. Pomatter, then you just need to sign up in the theatre before that evening’s performance begins.
Brought to London by an all-female lead creative team, with music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles, Waitress tells the story of talented pie-maker and waitress Jenna, who has ambitions of leaving her small town and unhappy marriage behind her. But with life serving up some unexpected change for her, and a baking contest offering her a fresh start, can Jenna write a new recipe for her happiness?
Katharine McPhee, who played Jenna on Broadway earlier this year, will be reprising the role on the West End, and will be joined by Marisha Wallace (Dreamgirls) playing Becky, Laura Baldwin (Eugenius) as Dawn, Peter Hannah (Shakespeare in Love) as Earl and David Hunter (Kinky Boots) as Dr. Pomatter.
Previews for Waitress will begin on 8 February 2019 at the Adelphi Theatre, ahead of the official opening night on 7 March.
