Sara Bareilles & Katharine McPhee Close Up the Diner at 'Waitress' Final Performance

The Broadway musical Waitress has officially closed after a nearly four-year run in the Big Apple!

Sara Bareilles, the composer of the musical, joined the cast and creative team during the final curtain call on Sunday night (January 5) at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in New York City.

During her speech, Sara thanked the show’s final Jenna, Katharine McPhee, for all of the hard work she’s done for the show over the last couple years.

Kat made sure to give special recognition to Jenna understudy Stephanie Torns, who has been with the show since it’s beginning stages over five years ago. While running on stage for her final bow, Kat grabbed Stephanie and pulled her to center stage to share the spotlight. Such a sweet moment!

Waitress is still playing around the world with a National Tour currently running and the London production still going strong. Sara will be joining the London cast later this month!
