Katharine McPhee (American Idol, Waitress on Broadway, Smash) joins the WAITRESS London cast to play 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.
Brought to life by a ground-breaking, all-female creative team, this Tony Award®-nominated hit features original music and lyrics by 6-time Grammy®nominee Sara Bareilles (“Love Song,” “Brave”), a book by acclaimed screenwriter Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam) and direction by Tony Award® winner Diane Paulus (Pippin, Finding Neverland).
“Waitress is a little slice of heaven!” says Entertainment Weekly, and is “sweet, sassy and passionate,” according to New York Magazine. Don’t miss this uplifting and hilarious musical!
As musicals go it was very good. However not suitable for my 13 year old due to done scenes if a sexual nature and adult theme.
Absolutely excellent show. Amazing singing voices ....... Story was gritty in places but very funny as well. Clever use of the musicians on the stage. I highly recommend it.
Thoroughly enjoyed the show. Casting was great, performances excellent. Lovely way to spend an evening. Will go again.
A fabulous show with phenomenal songs and a great story.My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was amazing!!!!!!!!! Couldn’t recommend it more!
Katherine McPhee is phenomenal, but so is the rest of the cast. A great evening of entertainment and a surprising storyline. This is a must see!
OMG!! This was absolutely spectacular, much laughter and a few tears along the way, brilliant cast and fantastic music. A massive standing ovation, the whole audience were on their feet. I want to go see it again!
I really liked the show, simple straight like a good bourbon. I missed some of the slangs but the singing was superb. Very happy of the sweet pie result!
The best musical I’ve seen in a long time. Staging, singing and acting great! Would definately recommend it.
both myself and my daughter thought the whole performance was brilliant Both funny and sad the singing was amazing would love to see it again would highly recommend going
What an amazing show. From walking into the theatre to the lovely smells to the amazing singing and story. Absolutely loved it
Beautiful, feel good music tells this sweet story of Jenna. Great acting and a brilliant set.
Best musical I've seen in a very long time. Beautiful set, incredible cast, ear-worm-y songs and all in all an amazing night out.
After having waited years for it to be in a venue that I could get to, I was visibly trembling when the music started. A fabulous ensemble piece of musical theatre. A story with friendship at it's centre, and the musicians featured in amongst it all. This is my favourite musical! Will be seeing it again.
I've just created a new word after watching this... Documusical. Emotional abuse, unwanted pregnancy, broken marriages, women's empowerment with a huge pie serving of fun and laughter, all the right ingredients for a documentary and musical in one. All main characters carried their own and were all superb, Nurse really came into her own as the show went on. Music ranged from country to contemporary Christian music, with typical power ballad song, slapstick comedy songs (with genius choreography to match) and the tear jerker song. A fab new musical, it will definitely sweep the awards season.
This was the perfect musical to watch during International Women's Day Week! Great show, realistic characters, awesome songs!
You will laugh and cry and sometimes cry laughing!! This is an amazing and charming musical. The first act finished and I got straight on my phone to book tickets to see it again because it is that good.
Absolutely amazing! Bought the tickets as a Xmas present for my mother and daughter and we all loved it! Great story, wonderful music, stunning performances from all the cast - we laughed, we cried and felt uplifted at the end! When can I go again?
We had no expectations but this was a fun show with excellent performances and singing. If we were to be really critical,some annunciation could have been better.
An excellent show. Would recommend it to one and all.
Absolutely love this show. It is funny, emotional and the music is great!
This is a brilliant show. Exceptional cast......wonderful vocals. I will be recommending it to family and friends.
The musical was one of the best musicals I have ever seen. Katharine McPhee is an incredible actress and has a phenomenal voice. I would definitely recommend people go and see it.
YAASSSSS! loved it - though disappointed I didn't buy the pie sooner - it was all gone when I got there
Waitress was so entertaining. The cast was brilliant, funny and extremely talented. Kathrine McPhee is such a star with a voice that will leave you with chills. This adorable tale into the life of a Pie baker will leave you smiling for days!
What an amazing show. I will defo be back to watch it again.
I saw Waitress based on two counts - having heard 'It used to be me' sung at a show about leading ladies at Cadogan Hall and the presence of Katharine McPhee as a leading lady. I was blown away by both and the rest of the fantastic cast. It is a brilliant musical with oodles of humour and pathos and the entire production should be very proud of the end result which was super slick and enjoyable.
I was so happy to finally see this musical and it did NOT disappoint. It was as amazing as I hoped it would be and the cast were exceptional. Kathryn McPhee was suburb with an emotional and stunning performance. I would thoroughly recommend you go!
Great show and the venue was lovely!
This is by far the best thing I have ever seen. The show was great the cast were amazing. It was so energetic and funny. I really can’t put into words how happy this show made me. I’m already booking again.
We go to musical theatre a lot! This is certainly one of the best we’ve seen. My partner and I both loved it. From its simple staging, to its wonderful music and simply brilliant performances from the whole cast. Even the slightly irritating people in front who came in late, intermittently chatted throughout the performance and the man who was itritatingly tall couldn’t take away from what was a fabulous evenings entertainment. Funny, emotional and heartwarming.
Great story line, fantastic songs, very funny & serious scenes, characters so so good and singing was just amazing
Great show, well performed, well produced. I wasn’t keen on the overall story, it was all a bit too much like ‘normal life’, (perhaps a story you might see on Jeremy Kyle tho). But I still enjoyed the show and can’t deny it’s excellence. Brilliant humour in it, with good comic timing. All in all it’s a great show and well worth a watch. I just prefer a story that’s more magical or fantasy. But that’s just my personal taste.
Fantastic musical thoroughly enjoyed every minute. If get the chance to see again will definitely book again!! Packed out show for a great performance.
An amazing show with brilliant actors who all played the parts with such enthusiasm
Wonderful musical with great acting, dialogue and fantastic songs!! The cast karaoke at the end was a sweet touch for the fans! I will definitely be going to watch it again!!!!!
What a great show, full of emotion, amazing singing, fantastic cast Thoroughly recommend this new shoe
This is now my favourite musical. I listened to the soundtrack a lot for over a year and I wasn’t disappointed when I finally got to see it. I was pleasantly surprised by how funny it was. The cast performance was outstanding. The vocals were on point, the audience was so engaged and the story was beautiful. I would definitely go and see this again.
My new favourite musical!! So funny and entertaining!! The performers were exceptional! Can't imagine anyone fitting the roles better! Such a happy atmosphere. Creds to the production as well, beautiful set and the transitions were perfect.
Feel good. Really interesting- loved the songs.
Really really enjoyed Waitress. Wonderful cast and musicians. The staging was innovative and the lighting excellent. Beautiful singing. It was funny and sad and uplifting.
What a fabulous cast and show! Incredible leading lady and cast. Would love to see it multiple times!
