Waitress extends run in London’s West End to March 2020
Waitress has extended its run in London’s West End for a further three months.
With a Tony and Grammy nominated score by Sara Bareilles, a book by Jessie Nelson and direction by Paulus, Waitress features a ground-breaking, all-female lead creative team.
It tells the story of Jenna a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage.
Originally opening in February of this year, the musical has extended its booking period until March 28, 2020 with new tickets now on sale.
The extension comes following the recent introduction of YouTuber and Strictly Come Dancing finalist Joe Sugg in the role of Ogie.
Joe said: “I got to see the show a couple of months back and it’s absolutely fantastic.
“I’m excited to be a part of the cast and to have now landed a role in the West End really has topped off an incredible year for me. I hope I do everyone proud.”
Alongside Sugg, Tamlyn Henderson this month took over the role of Earl and Cindy Belliot joined the ensemble.
Lucie Jones currently appears in the lead role of Jenna with Laura Baldwin as Dawn and Marisha Wallace as Becky.
The current casting also includes David Hunter as Dr. Pomatter and Andrew Boyer as diner owner Old Joe.
Completing the current cast are Kelly Agbowu, Piers Bate, Nicole Raquel Dennis, Michael Hamway, Peter Hannah, Stephen Leask, Chris McGuigan, Olivia Moore, Nathaniel Morrison, Sarah O’Connor, Leanne Pinder and Charlotte Riby and Mark Willshire.
