There’s already a big treat on its way at the Adelphi Theatre when Sara Bareilles’ musical Waitress opens for previews from 8 February, but that’s not all on the menu. In the perfect pie partnership, The Theatre Café has teamed up with the show and will be making and selling delicious fresh pies each evening. Does a night out get any better than that?
Audience members will be able to buy the famous Waitress pie jars, originally created by Cute As Cake of New York, in apple crumble, chocolate salted caramel or banoffee at the Adelphi Theatre.
Rehearsals are now underway ahead of the show’s official opening night on 7 March 2019. The West End premiere of Sara Bareilles’ Waitress will star Katharine McPhee as Jenna, Emmy-nominee Jack McBrayer as Ogie, Marisha Wallace as Becky, Laura Baldwin as Dawn, Peter Hannah as Earl, David Hunter as Dr. Pomatter and Shaun Prendergast as Old Joe. Currently playing its third year on Broadway, Waitress will bring with it an all-female lead creative team – a West End musical first: book writer Jessie Nelson, director Diane Paulus and and choreographer Lorin Latarro.
Waitress also recently announced the first of its “Cast Album Karaoke” nights in London, meaning that theatre lovers who have always dreamt of singing on the West End stage will soon be able to make their dream a reality. The first ever karaoke nights will be held post-show on Tuesday 19 February and Monday 18 March 2019.
