The Grammy winner, who appeared on composer Sara Bareilles’ concept album for the musical, took on the role of Dr. Pomatter November 3.
Grammy Award winner Jason Mraz took his first Broadway bow November 3 as he steps into Waitress.
The singer-songwriter takes on the role of Dr. Pomatter, the new-to-town gynecologist who offers local diner employee and baker Jenna Hunterson (currently played by Betsy Wolfe) an escape from her abusive marriage.
Also beginning a limited stint in the musical November 3 is David Josefsberg (An Act of God, Honeymoon in Vegas), who fills in for Christopher Fitzgerald in the role of Ogie through November 19.
Joining the two in their first curtain call was composer Sara Bareilles (who also previously starred in the show).
