A Day With Waitress Leading Man Drew Gehling

Go backstage, eat marshmallows, and text Sara Bareilles with the show's lovable goofball MD.

In Waitress, the Broadway musical created by Sara Bareilles and Jessie Nelson, Drew Gehling plays the charming Dr. Pomatter opposite Jessie Mueller's Jenna. To get into character for each performance, Gehling has an extensive pre-show ritual that takes him from sign-in to his dressing room to the opening number. Join TheaterMania as we tail him all the way from his first marshmallow through the last seconds before curtain-up.
