The Broadway production of Waitress will offer a limited number of day-of rush tickets for every performance beginning August 22. The $40 seats will be sold when the Brooks Atkinson Theatre box office opens.
Those rushing will be able to purchase up to two tickets (first come, first served) with cash or credit.
The box office (located at 256 West 47th Street) opens at 10 AM Tuesdays through Saturdays and at noon on Sundays.
Featuring a score by Grammy and Tony nominee Sara Bareilles and a book by Jessie Nelson, Waitress opened on Broadway in April 2016. Directed by Diane Paulus and based on the 2007 film of the same name, the musical tells the story of a small-town diner employee who dreams up creatively titled pies as a means of escape from her abusive marriage.
Betsy Wolfe currently stars as Jenna; the company also includes Drew Gehling as Dr. Pomatter, Tony nominee Christopher Fitzgerald as Ogie, Charity Angel Dawson as Becky, Caitlin Houlahan as Dawn, Joe Tippett as Earl, Larry Marshall as Joe, and Eric Anderson as Cal.
