The Waitress cast has only just starting cooking, and they’re already baking a success, as an extension on the show’s booking period has been announced.

Due to popular demand, more tickets are being released, so you can now buy Waitress tickets up to 19 October 2019.

There will also be a limited number of day seats available to purchase in person from the Adelphi Theatre’s box office for £25 (from 10am, Mon-Weds performances only, subject to availability and at the box office’s discretion).

Katharine McPhee as Jenna in Waitress

Waitress is all about Jenna, an expert pie-maker and waitress. Stuck in a small town and an unhappy marriage, Jenna sees a way out of both when she spots a baking contest in a nearby county. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.

The Tony-nominated musical by Sara Bareilles has been an extraordinary hit in America and is currently playing its third year on Broadway. The London transfer will be led by an all-female creative team, a first for a West End musical.

David Hunter, Marisha Wallace, Katharine McPhee, Laura Baldwin and Peter Hannah will star in Waitress

Directed by Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus, the all-star cast includes Katharine McPhee (Smash) as Jenna, Emmy-nominee Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) as Ogie, Marisha Wallace (Dreamgirls) as Becky, Laura Baldwin (Eugenius) as Dawn, Peter Hannah (Shakespeare In Love) as Earl, David Hunter (Kinky Boot) as Dr. Pomatter.
