On April 24, Waitress celebrates its third anniversary on Broadway. With music and lyrics by singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles, a book by Jessie Nelson and direction by Diane Paulus, Waitress continues to run at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.

To celebrate Waitress' anniversary, we're taking a look back at the many performers to take on the lead role of Jenna. Originated by Tony winner Jessie Mueller, the character has since been played by Betsy Wolfe, Katharine McPhee, Nicolette Robinson, and Bareilles herself. Shoshana Bean currently stars in the role alongside Tony nominee Jeremy Jordan as Dr. Pomatter, and Charity Angél Dawson and Lenne Klingaman as Becky and Dawn, respectively.
