Jason Mraz, who currently makes his Broadway debut in Waitress, has extended his limited engagement in the musical at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre for a second time. The Grammy Award winner will continue in the role of Dr. Pomatter through February 11 instead of the previously scheduled January 28.

As recently announced, Sara Bareilles, who earned Tony and Grammy nominations for her score and made her Broadway performing debut in the musical last year, will reprise her performance as Jenna from January 16 through February 25, taking over for Betsy Wolfe.

Drew Gehling, who originated the role of Dr. Pomatter in the Broadway company, will take the stage once more as the new-to-town OB-GYN beginning February 13.

Mraz will not appear in the show February 1 or 2 due to prior obligations.

In addition to Wolfe and Mraz, the current company includes Tony nominees Christopher Fitzgerald and Will Swenson as Ogie and Earl, Tony winner John Cullum as Joe, Caitlin Houlahan as Dawn, NaTasha Yvette Williams as Becky, and Benny Elledge as Cal.
