    US film and television star Jack McBrayer will make his West End debut in the role of Ogie in Waitress the Musical, which will begin preview performances on 8 February ahead of its official opening night on 7 March at London's Adelphi Theatre.

    As previously announced, Katherine McPhee will star as Jenna, having played the role on Broadway earlier this year alongside Marisha Wallace as Becky, Laura Baldwin as Dawn, Peter Hannah as Earl and with David Hunter as Dr. Pomatter. Currently playing its third year on Broadway, Waitress the Musical will bring with it an all-female lead creative team - a West End musical first.

    Jack McBrayer was Emmy-nominated for his protrayal of Kenneth Parcell on the multi-award winning and critically acclaimed series 30 Rock for NBC. He is also known for his work on The Jack and Triumph Show for Universal/Adult Swim, Adult Swim's first half hour comedy straight to series pickup, which Jack executive produced and starred opposite Robert Smigel. He can be seen in Cooties opposite Elijah Wood and Rainn Wilson for Lionsgate which premiered at Sundance. Jack also starred in Forgetting Sarah Marshall opposite Jason Segel, directed by Nicholas Stroller and produced by Judd Apatow for Universal.  

     Jack can also be seen appearing on ABC’s The Middle, Comedy Central’s Drunk History opposite Derek Waters and USA’s Playing House opposite Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair. He can be heard voicing the lead role of Fix-It Felix in Wreck-It Ralph, directed Rich Moore and produced by John Lasseter for Disney. His other animated film voice credits include Despicable Me for Universal, The Simpsons on Fox and Archer on FX.          

    Waitress the Musical also recently announced the first of its 'Cast Album Karaoke' nights in London, meaning that theatre lovers who have always dreamt of singing on the West End stage will soon be able to make their dream a reality. The first ever karaoke nights will be held post-show on Tuesday 19 February and Monday 18 March 2019. For the chance to sing one minute of any song from the show – live on stage and accompanied by the show’s musical director Katharine Woolley – interested audience members just need to sign up in the theatre before the performance.
