Kimiko Glenn is set to star alongside Christopher Fitzgerald and Jessie Mueller in Waitress. This is not Glenn’s first stage role, however. She has appeared in the musicals Spring Awakening and Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots.
Waitress is based on a 2007 indie film by Adrienne Shelly, and it is written by singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles and author Jessie Nelson. This is Bareilles’ first theater gig.
Watiress previews on March 25, 2016 at Broadway’s Brooks Atkinson Theater and opens on April 24, 2016.
