Joshua Henry and Ciara Renée have joined the cast of Waitress ahead of the diner wrapping up at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on January 9, 2022. Check out the pair performing the Sara Bareilles tune “You Matter to Me.”

In addition to Renée and Henry starring as Jenna and Dr. Pomatter, respectively, the current company of Waitress includes Eric Anderson as Cal, Ashley Blanchet as Dawn, Tyrone Davis, Jr. as Ogie, Dakin Matthews as Joe, Maiesha McQueen as Becky, and Ben Thompson as Earl.

Based on the 2007 motion picture written by Adrienne Shelly, Waitress is the first Broadway musical in history to have four women in the four top creative team spots, with a book by Jessie Nelson, music and lyrics by Grammy Winner and Tony and Emmy Award-nominated Sara Bareilles, choreography by Lorin Latarro and direction by Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus.

Waitress tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker stuck in a small town and a loveless marriage. When a baking contest in a nearby county offers her a chance at escape, Jenna fights to reclaim a long-forgotten part of herself. Through the support of her fellow waitresses and an unexpected romance, Jenna begins to find the courage to take a long-abandoned dream off the shelf. Waitress celebrates the power of friendship, dreams, the family we choose, and the beauty of a well-baked pie.
