It used to be ours… and soon it will again! The producers of the musical Waitress have made official that its national tour will be on track next spring, with more than 30 venues already announced. After giving its final West End performance by the beginning of March, this will be the second time the show goes on the road – the first being the North American tour, currently on hiatus due to the pandemic.
With its full cast list to be released soon, the play features music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles, which tell the story of Jane, an expert pie maker who dreams of escaping from her loveless marriage. It will be thanks to a local pie contest and the arrival to town of a new doctor that Jane will find a chance to make a fresh start. First performed at Broadway’s Brook Atkinsons Theatre, the musical is also scheduled to open in Austria, Holland and Japan in due course.
The tour will start at Bradford’s The Alambra Theatre on May 1st, where it will stay until May 8th. Further venues include the Birmingham Hippodrome (May 11th to 15th), Liverpool Empire (May 31st to June 5th), Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall (June 14th to 19th), the Edinburgh Playhouse (January 18th to 22nd, 2022) and Belfast’s Grand Opera House (March 1st to 5th, 2020), among many others.
Tickets for the tour can be purchased already on the following link – some locations to be bookable in the next few days.
