Sara Bareilles ready to bring Waitress to London?
It’s the delicious new musical that became the crème de la crème of Broadway, but Sara Bareilles has confirmed Waitress is looking to transfer to the West End.
Waitress, which is based on the 2007 film of the same film which is about a waitress called Jenna who is the victim of an abusive relationship, premiered on Broadway in 2016 and is set to open in Sydney in 2020.
Responding to one fan’s frustrations about the musical not yet cooking up a storm in London, composer Bareilles said: “We are working on it my dear! We are hopeful for a home very soon! London is so high on our wish list... we just need a theater!”
We are working on it my dear! We are hopeful for a home very soon! London is so high on our wish list... we just need a theater! (turns out it's very useful for a show) It's not because we don't want to be there! I promise!! Thank you for your passion! https://t.co/9qclAZBIY1
