Stephanie Torns, who was part of the ensemble and starred as the primary understudy Jenna in Waitress during its try-outs at the ART and during both Broadway runs, has been announced as the star of the show’s forthcoming limited residencies.

The shows will reunite former Broadway cast members and new cast members, as well as some who have appeared in the First National Tour and non-Equity tours of the show. Bryan Fenkart, who starred in the First National Tour, will reprise his role as Dr. Pomatter, whilst Olivia Phillip, who was part of the Broadway ensemble and appeared in the restaging, will star as Becky. Kendyl Ito joins the Waitress family as Dawn, alongside Timothy John Smith as Cal and Daniel Quadrino as Ogie.

Larry Marshall reprises his Broadway role as Joe, and Matt DeAngelis reprises his role as Earl from the First National Tour. Bailey McCall, who led the first part of the non-Equity tour as Jenna, will star in the ensemble and understudy for Stephanie.

The show is currently due to return to Charlotte for a special five-week engagement from 19 April 19 to 22 May 2022 in the Booth Playhouse, followed by a five-week engagement at Cleveland’s Playhouse Square from 26 May to 26 June 2022 in the Hanna Theatre.
