London’s ‘Waitress’ Production Has Closed for Good, Will Not Return After Shutdown

The London production of Sara Bareilles‘ hit musical Waitress has officially closed and it will not return when West End performances resume later this year.

Sara was reprising her role as Jenna in the musical this month and cut her run short in order to travel home safely amid concerns over travel bans. Her final performance was on March 14 and that ended up being the show’s final performance as well.

“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,” the producers said in a statement. “If things do change and there is a world in which we believe we could continue a run at the Adelphi before July 4, we will be in touch with you. Ticket holders will be contacted in due course by their point of purchase.”

The Broadway production of Waitress closed earlier this year.
