Grammy and Tony-nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles will return to the role of Jenna in her hit Broadway musical Waitress beginning January 7 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. The same day, Hello, Dolly! Tony winner Gavin Creel will start performances as Dr. Pomatter.

In a statement, Bareilles said, “It’s Waitress’ third anniversary on Broadway! To celebrate, I’m putting on the apron once again alongside one of my besties!! I can’t think of anything I would rather do to kick off this incredible milestone year than return to my favorite place on earth next to the one and only Gavin Creel.”

Bareilles first stepped into the leading role of Waitress in 2017. In addition to Hello, Dolly!, Creel is known for his performances in Thoroughly Modern Millie, Hair, She Loves Me, and The Book of Mormon (for which he earned an Olivier Award).

Waitress, which opened April 24, 2016, is based upon the 2007 film written by the late Adrienne Shelly. The musical is the first Broadway production in history to have four women in the four top creative team spots, with a book by Jessie Nelson, a score by Bareilles, choreography by Lorin Latarro, and direction by Tony winner Diane Paulus.
