Sara Bareilles is giving her musical its just deserts (or, desserts). Waitress walked away the week ending January 28 with a total gross of $1,626,478, landing it in the top five highest-grossing shows of the week.
The singer-songwriter, who recently returned to the stage to play Jenna in her musical, plays a limited engagement through March 11. Starring alongside her is Grammy winner Jason Mraz as Dr. Pomatter through February 11.
The seven-figure gross marks a new house record at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. Additionally, the January 27 evening performance grossed $229,385—the highest gross for a single performance at the theatre.
Joining Waitress at the top of the boards were usual suspects Hamilton (in its fifth consecutive week breaking $3 million), Springsteen on Broadway, The Lion King, and Dear Evan Hansen.
