As Waitress approaches its final stretch on Broadway, the Sara Bareilles musical welcomes back an old friend to the diner. Katharine McPhee returns to the production at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, starring as Jenna from November 25 until the show's final performance January 5, 2020.

McPhee, a veteran of American Idol and the cult-favorite musical drama Smash, made her Broadway debut in the musical last year. She went on to open the show in London's West End February to June this year. She assumes the role this time around from fellow American Idol veteran Jordin Sparks.
