The play, an adaptation of the 2007 film starring Felicity’s Keri Russell, will begin in April 2016 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, according to Billboard.

Waitress is currently playing at Harvard University’s American Repertory Theater and starring Jessie Muller. Muller won a Tony Award in 2014 for best leading actress in a musical for her role in Carole King’s Beautiful. It’s unclear whether Muller will join the Broadway cast but director Diane Paulus, who is helming the play currently, will join the next run.
