FIRST LOOK: People released this first professional photo of American Idol and Smash favorite Katherine McPhee donning her blue diner uniform as she gets ready to deliver a baby and bake delicious pies 8 times a week in Waitress the Musical beginning next month.
McPhee is set to begin performances as “Jenna” in the Tony and Grammy nominated smash hit staring April 10th, 2018 and will play a limited engagement through June 17th, 2018 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.
The show’s composer and current leading lady Tony and Grammy nominee Sara Bareilles takes her final bow on March 11th, 2018. During that time between Bareilles’ last day and leading up to McPhee’s start date, the lead role of “Jenna” will be rotated by understudies Stephanie Torns (who appears in the Ensemble every night) and Molly Jobe (who is a Swing in the show).
For McPhee, this is her REAL and long awaited Broadway Debut. As we all know, she is no stranger to the world of the Great White Way with playing the beloved green, naïve, and talented ingénue “Karen Cartwright” on NBC’s Smash. As her character, she starts out in the Ensemble of the Pre-Broadway run of the Marilyn Monroe musical BOMBSHELL and ends up making her Broadway debut going into the pop/rock opera HIT LIST.
Who is excited?
