Sugar, butter and another reason to see the show.
Sara Bareilles will return to her Broadway creation Waitress as leading lady Jenna for another six weeks at the pie shop. Currently Jason Mraz stars in the show as Dr. Pomatter, and has now decided to extend his ten week run to twelve, overlapping Bareilles' return for two weeks of onstage magic in January 2018.
Waitress tells the story of down-on-her-luck pie maker Jenna, who becomes trapped in a toxic marriage when she accidentally becomes pregnant. With her sights set on winning a pie-baking contest to get her out of this mess, Jenna finds love in an affair with her married gynocolegist Dr. Pomatter along the way.
