Jennifer Nettles is headed to Broadway. The singer, who recently released “Always Like New,” an album of show tunes, will play the lead role of Jenna in the musical “Waitress.”
Jennifer will take over for Sara Bareillis, who departs the role on October 17th. Jennnifer will make her debut on October 19th, with her run lasting until November 24th.
"It is an absolute dream," Jennifer shares. "There are so many layers to ‘Waitress’ that make it so meaningful to me. It is heart-warming, heart-breaking at times, and absolutely heart-inspiring. I'm thrilled to be able to finally get to wear the apron."
She adds, "I hope everyone will come check it out, because I know I will be having a grand time.”
