Facts & Figures

The creatives behind Waitress were the first ever all-female team on Broadway, and when the show gets its London premiere in 2019, it will be the first all-female creative team in the West End.

During the Broadway production, pies are baked before the show for an authentic diner aroma. The theatre is scented by baking fresh pies with a lot of cinnamon in order for the aroma to waft around.
