The producers of Waitress are thrilled to announce the release of “What’s Not Inside: The Lost Songs from Waitress,” a new EP featuring outtakes and demos recorded by Sara Bareilles for the smash hit musical. Available for pre-order today, the 7 track EP (extended play) is set for release on download and streaming services this Friday 16th August.
To celebrate this new EP, Waitress is also releasing a special video performance of “Without A Believer,” featuring Jeremy Jordan, a recent Dr. Pomatter from the Broadway production.
Following its world premiere on Broadway in April 2016, the Tony-nominated musical celebrated its official opening night at London’s Adelphi Theatre on 7 March 2019 where it is currently booking until 4 January 2020.
Waitress tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams her way out of a loveless marriage. When a hot new doctor arrives in town, life gets complicated. With the support of her workmates Becky and Dawn, Jenna overcomes the challenges she faces and finds that laughter, love and friendship can provide the perfect recipe for happiness.

The production is also currently touring the US and Canada and has announced an Australian premiere in 2020 at the Sydney Lyric Theatre with further productions to open in Holland next year and Japan in 2021.
