A third tour of Waitress the Musical will start in the USA on 19 April, opening at the Booth Playhouse in Charlotte for a 5-week engagement.

The new tour will be an Equity tour, meaning cast members will be part of the union, and will overlap with the current 2019-22 non-equity tour, which is due to run until June 2022.

Charlotte is the opening city on this special tour hitting just a handful of markets around the country, opening for a special 5-week engagement, from 19 April – 22 May 2022, in the intimate 442-seat Booth Playhouse.

“Waitress was a fan favourite during its first run in Charlotte in 2018 and we are thrilled to kick off this second tour with a special return engagement,” said Tom Gabbard, Blumenthal Performing Arts CEO. “Seeing this beloved show in a smaller, more intimate venue will give Charlotte audiences an unrivaled chance to connect more deeply with the musical’s heartfelt story of resilience, which feels timelier than ever. Sara Bareilles herself played the intimate Booth Playhouse, so it’s wonderful to welcome her music back to that stage.” 

Full casting for the return engagement will be announced shortly.
