We are heartbroken to announce that Waitress on Broadway will be closing effective immediately.

With only two weeks of performances remaining and due to positive cases of COVID detected in the company and crew at the Barrymore Theatre, the decision has been made to curtail the engagement which was scheduled to run through January 9.

This is not how we wanted to finish our run but are so grateful to every fan and theater-lover who visited the Diner these past few months.

Ticket holders will be contacted and refunded by their point of purchase.

Thanks for taking us to the moon!

“Dear Baby. I hope someday somebody wants to hold you for 20 minutes straight. They don’t pull away, they don’t look at your face, they don’t try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms and hold on tight without an ounce of selfishness to it… I hope you become addicted, Baby. I hope you become addicted to saying things and having them matter to someone.”

We've all heard of double casting, where more than one person handles a specific role (commonly done for children's parts in musicals), but how many of us have heard of "double breasting?" This is a rarely used term to describe efforts by producers where they organize a unionized, or Equity, show at the same time that they organize a non-union on non-Equity road show. Actor's Equity has dropped their efforts to represent the non-Equity national tour of "Waitress," which now lists the Saenger Theater as its last stop from June 10-12 on the tour. https://bway.ly/wq40v3#https://www.nytimes.com/2022/05/05/theater/waitress-equity.html American Theatre Critics Association Saenger Theatre Waitress the Musical
