After finishing in Falsettos at The Other Palace tonight (23 November 2019), Joel Montague will return to the West End to take over from YouTube star Joe Sugg as Ogie in Waitress at the Adelphi Theatre. His first performance takes place on Monday 2 December 2019.
Montague joins lead cast members Lucie Jones as Jenna, Hannah Tointon as Dawn, Sandra Marvin as Becky, David Hunter as Dr Pomatter, Tamlyn Henderson as Earl and Andrew Boyer as Old Joe.
Waitress celebrated its official West End opening night at the Adelphi Theatre on 7 March 2019 and the Tony-nominated musical also announced a further extension this week with the show now booking until 4 July 2020, when it will finish in London ahead of a UK tour.
Waitress tells the story of Jenna, an expert pie maker in a small town, who dreams of a way out of her loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a chance at a new life, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes to happiness. But Jenna must find the courage and strength within herself to rebuild her life. This American musical celebrates friendship, motherhood, and the magic of a well-made pie.
