Pie will be back on the menu as Broadway reopens.
"Waitress," the hit musical that ran from April 2016 to January 2020, will return for a limited run starting Sept. 2 with Sara Bareilles once again as its star. The show, which features songs by Bareilles, will run through Jan. 9 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre.
"I couldn’t miss the opportunity to be there when Broadway welcomes audiences back into theaters that have been sitting dark for over a year," said Bareilles, who will appear through Oct. 17.
Based on Adrienne Shelly's 2007 indie film about a pregnant, unhappily married waitress, the show first featured Bareilles — who replaced the show's original star, Jessie Mueller — from March through June 2017. Bareilles reprised the role for two months in 2018 and for a month in 2019.
A centerpiece of the "Waitress" set is the pie case, which features 27 freshly baked pies that play an important role in the show.
