Broadway – Restaging

Waitress the Musical transferred to one of the 41 theatres on Broadway, located in midtown Manhattan, New York City, playing 33 previews and 1533 regular performances at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre from 25 March 2016 to 5 January 2020.

In March 2020, Broadway theatres ‘went dark’ and closed due to the global COVID-19 pandemic; Waitress had officially closed in the January, so was not affected. However, as the pandemic continued, it became apparent that some shows would not be reopening when theatres could officially reopen in September 2021; Barry and Fran Weissler expressed an interest in re-opening Waitress the Musical for a limited run.

On 8 July 2021, it was officially announced that Waitress the Musical would be reopening on Broadway at the Barrymore Theatre on 2 September 2021, starring Sara Bareilles through to 17 October.
