The smash hit Broadway and West End musical, Waitress, is coming to Sunderland!
Barry and Fran Weissler and David Ian present the first ever UK and Ireland tour of the beloved musical which will arrive at the Sunderland Empire on February 1 2021.
Waitress tells the story of Jenna, an expert pie maker in a small town, who dreams of a way out of her loveless marriage.
A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a chance at a new life, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes to happiness. But Jenna must find the courage and strength within herself to rebuild her life.
The feel-good show is based on the 2007 movie written by Adrienne Shelley and is accompanied by music and lyrics by Grammy award-winning, singer-songwriter sensation, Sara Bareilles, who recently appeared on the Graham Norton TV show, performing the hit song from the show She Used To Be Mine.
With a book by Jessie Nelson, direction by Tony-award winner Diane Paulus and choreography by Lorin Latarro, Waitress has garnered multiple awards and nominations in both America and the UK, receiving acclaim from both audiences and critics alike.
This beautiful musical celebrates friendship, motherhood and the magic of a well-made pie. So, grab your closest pals and settle in for a little slice of heaven.
