This show is no longer running.

Update: Friday 27 March 2020

The producers of Waitress the Musical have today made the difficult decision to close this beloved London production. As you’re aware, we’ve had to temporarily lower the curtain at the Adelphi Theatre and suspend all performances. It’s now unlikely that the diner will reopen once this period of uncertainty is over. If things do change and there is a world in which Waitress the Musical could continue a run at the Adelphi before 4 July, we will be in touch with you. Ticketholders will be contacted in due course by their point of purchase.

We’re contacting all our guests in order of performance date, so please bear with us. As you can imagine we’re dealing with a high volume of queries at the moment, but be assured we’re working tirelessly to get back to everybody as soon as we possibly can.

Please don’t contact us until we’ve contacted you.

Waitress will embark on a UK & Ireland tour later in the year, so check out the tour dates to see if it’s coming to a theatre near you.

Thank you for your ongoing support and patience. We look forward to reopening our doors and welcoming you back soon.

With our best wishes for your health and well-being,
The LW Theatres Team
