Christopher Fitzgerald (original Boq – Broadway), Stephanie Torns (former s/b Elphaba – 2nd Natl. Tour; former ensemble, u/s Elphaba – Broadway, 1st Natl. Tour), and Ryan Vasquez (ensemble, Fiyero u/s – Broadway) have all been cast in the Broadway production of the Jessie Mueller led production of WAITRESS.
With a book by Jessie Nelson and music and lyrics by Grammy winner Sara Bareilles, WAITRESS tells the story of “Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker, [who] is stuck in a small town and a loveless marriage. When a baking contest in a nearby county offers her a chance at escape, Jenna must weigh her commitments against a rare shot at freedom and recognition. Her customers, co-workers, and the town’s handsome new doctor all offer her conflicting recipes for happiness — but Jenna must ultimately decide for herself.”
Following a sold-out, world-premiere production at A.R.T in Cambridge, MA, WAITRESS begins previews on March 25 with an official opening on April 24 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. Tickets can be ordered at (877) 250-2929, online at Ticketmaster.com or via the show’s Broadway website, Waitressonstage.com.
