West End production of Waitress announces early closure
In a statement posted on social media, producers said: ‘It is with great sadness that we announce the closing of our beloved London production of Waitress the Musical. As you’ll be aware, we’ve had to temporarily lower the curtain at the Adelphi Theatre and it’s now unlikely that the diner will reopen once this period of uncertainty is over.
‘If things do change and there is a world in which we believe we could continue a run at the Adelphi before 4th July, we will be in touch.’
If you purchased tickets for Waitress, you do not need to contact your point of purchase as you will be proactively contacted in due course.
The final performance of Waitress was on Saturday 14th March, and starred composer Sara Bareilles in the lead role of Jenna, alongside Gavin Creel as Dr Pomatter. The pair were due to perform until 21st March, but had announced they were leaving the show early to return home to America due to the developing global situation. West End theatres were closed on Monday 16th March.
Over the course of its run in the West End, the show had starred Katharine McPhee, Lucie Jones, David Hunter, Marisha Wallace, Laura Baldwin, Jack McBrayer, Joe Sugg and Ashley Roberts.
