The Smash and American Idol alum will originate the role of Jenna in the U.K. premiere of the Sara Bareilles musical.

After making her Broadway debut earlier this year, American Idol and Smash star Katharine McPhee will make her West End debut in 2019, reprising her starring role as pie maker Jenna in the musical Waitress for its U.K. premiere.

Waitress, currently still running on Broadway at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, will premiere at London's Adelphi Theatre February 8, 2019, before officially opening March 7.

Now in its third year on Broadway, Waitress (based on the film by Adrienne Shelly) features a book by Jessie Nelson, a score by six-time Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles, choreography by Lorin Latarro, and direction by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus.

Additional casting for the U.K. bow will be announced at a later date.
