Sara Bareilles and Gavin Creel will play their final performance at Waitress the Musical on the West End on the evening of Saturday 14 March.

Both actors were due to continue their extended run until the following week, 21 March, but due to the international travel restrictions around Coronavirus (COVID-19) have decided to return home earlier than planned, before any further measures are implemented.

In a statement, Sara said: “It was an agonising choice as we have so loved our time here at the Adelphi diner. The warmth and genorisity of the West End audiences has been unparalleled.

“It was a gift to get the opportunity to tell this story again alongside this masterful cast, crew and band. We will miss you all dearly. Sugar, Butter, London, Forever.”
