Waitress to serve up West End run?

Waitress, the Broadway musical based on the film directed by Adrienne Shelley, is looking to transfer to London in the spring.

The show, which was nominated for four Tony Awards, is the first Broadway musical in history to have four women in the four top creative team spots, with book by Jessie Nelson, score by five-time Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles, choreography by Lorin Latarro and direction by Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus.

According to Baz Bamigboye, the show’s producer Barry Weissler and director Diana Paulus are “seeking a theatre for what has become one of the most successful shows, after Hamilton”.

If you haven’t seen the film (and you really should) Waitress follows the story of Jenna, an expert pie maker stuck in a small town and a loveless marriage. Faced with an unexpected pregnancy, Jenna fears she may have to abandon the dream of opening her own pie shop forever… until a baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s handsome new doctor offer her a tempting recipe for happiness.
