Det Ny Teater have revealed the staging for the Scandinavian premiere of Waitress, which will open in Copenhagen officially on 7 April 2021 running through to 16 May 2021.

Terry Parsons designed the set for the show; he has previously designed sets and costumes for countless performances around the world, including many recent performances at Det Ny Teater. Educated at Cardiff Art College and London’s Central School of Art (now Central Saint Martins, part of University of the Arts, London), he became chief designer for the Belgrade Coventry during his studies. Terry has designed for over 37 West End productions, including Grease, South Pacific, Sweet Charity, Some Like It Hot and Singin ‘In The Rain, as well as a number of international productions, including Fame, Grease, Romeo and Juliet and The Dangerous Liaisons. His recent designs in Denmark include Beauty and the Beast, The King and I, Les Misérables, Mary Poppins and Singin ‘In The Rain.

Lighting design for the set is by Jason Taylor, who has designed lights for numerous performances in theatres both across the UK and internationally, including 20 seasons for Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre. For Det Ny Teater, he has previously designed lights for Love Never Dies, Evita, Billy Elliot, Jekyll & Hyde and Dance of the Vampires. He was nominated for a Tony Award for ‘Best Lighting Design’ for the staging of Journey’s End at the Belasco Theater, New York. Due to COVID-19 restrictions in the UK, Jason is currently overseeing lighting at Det Ny Teater remotely, from his home in England.
