Waitress played its final performance in Copenhagen, Denmark, last night, having premiered on 6 May 2021.

Det Ny Teater had originally planned for the show to run for approximately 3 months, but due to the changing situation with COVID-19 and the enhanced restrictions, resulting in restrictions, the show only ran for just over 2 weeks.

The show received critical acclaim, with Frederiksborg Amts Avis, Kulturinformation and Sceneblog giving the show 5 stars, and Politiken awarding the show 4 stars.

Det Ny Teater hope that the show can resume performances at a later date; the theatre has no planned performances until September 2021. They recently announced the Danish premiere of Kinky Boots in early 2022, a reverse of the situation at the Adelphi Theatre in London, where it played before Waitress.
