On September 28, Waitress announced Grammy winner Jason Mraz will step into the white coat of Dr. Pomatter beginning November 3.
The recording artist makes his Broadway debut with the show for a ten-week engagement. As he prepares to trade his fedora for a stethoscope, his co-star Betsy Wolfe quizzed him on his Waitress knowledge.

Waitress tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and talented pie baker stuck in an abusive marriage, played by Wolfe. Things start to change when she begins to fall in love with her gynecologist Dr. Pomatter, and then finds out about a pie-baking contest that could be her way out.
With music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles, a book by Jessie Nelson based on the movie by Adrienne Shelly, choreography by Lorin Latarro, and direction by Diane Paulus, Waitress broke ground as the first musical with an all-female creative team.
The musical has also announced a national tour opening in Cleveland, Ohio, in October.
