DUE to popular demand and ahead of its first preview tonight (February 8, 2019), Waitress has extended its booking period at the Adelphi Theatre until October 19, 2019.

The production has also just announced that a limited number of day seats will be available to purchase in person from the theatre box office for £25 (from 10am, Monday to Wednesday performances only, subject to availability and at the box office’s discretion).

Previously Posted: The London production of Waitress has cast its youngest company members. At just four and six years old, Fifi Christophers (pictured below) and Arabella Duffy (pictured top) will make their West End debuts sharing the role of Lulu.

The Tony-nominated musical by Sara Bareilles will have its official opening night at the Adelphi Theatre on March 7, 2019, following preview performances from February 8.

Meet Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and rocky marriage. Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as “The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie” and “Betrayed By My Eggs Pie.”

When a baking contest in a nearby county — and a satisfying run-in with someone new — show Jenna a chance at a fresh start, she must find the courage to seize it. Change is on the menu, as long as Jenna can write her own perfectly personal recipe for happiness.

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. Read more.
