Get Your First Look of Jennifer Nettles in 'Waitress' on Broadway!

Jennifer Nettles is heading back to Broadway in the hit musical Waitress and the first photo of her as Jenna has been released!

The country singer, who is best known as the lead vocalist of Sugarland, has previously appeared on Broadway in Chicago and she did the musical Mamma Mia at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

Jennifer joins the cast of Broadway’s Waitress on October 19, taking over for the show’s composer Sara Bareilles, who is leaving the show after a seven-week run in the musical.

It was just announced that Madam Secretary actor Erich Bergen will be joining Jennifer in Waitress, reprising his role as love interest Dr. Pomatter. He previously played the role in 2018 and 2019.

Erich will perform a limited run from October 19-24 and again November 1-7. Jennifer remains with the show until November 24.

“It’s a character I love, a show I love, and a community I love,” Erich told THR. “The only thing better than seeing a Broadway show is being in one, and as a theatre kid who grew up in New York City, to be a part of Broadway’s reopening means more to me than you can imagine.”

Watch a touching video from Waitress‘ first performance back on Broadway after the COVID-19 shutdown.
