Waitress is the new musical that’s waiting for you in London’s West End. Created by an all-female team and starring Katharine McPhee, it tells the story of a young pastry chef trapped in a life that doesn’t entirely satisfy her. Will she be able to cope with change? Will she be brave enough to choose happiness?
With an unforgettable musical score by Sara Bareilles and direction from the Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus, Waitress is a heart-warming story of how a young woman struggles against all odds to acheive her dream...
Jenna is an expert pastry chef and waitress who pours all her passion into each one of her creations. However, it’s not as happy a life as she had dreamed, trapped as she is in her small town and an unsatisfactory marriage. Jenna aspires to so much more.
But it won’t take long before a life-changing opportunity knocks at her door in the form of a pastry contest in a nearby county. Jenna won’t hesitate to answer the call, to live new experiences and meet new people. Will she be able to cope with all these new developments and will she be able to take control of the change?
