Play • 36 min

Lucie is starring in the UK tour of Waitress, reprising her performance from the West End production (Adelphi Theatre).

Based on the 2007 movie written by Adrienne Shelly, Waitress has music and lyrics by Sara Bareilles with book by Jessie Nelson. Directed by Diane Paulus with choreography by Lorin Latarro, Waitress has garnered multiple awards and nominations in both America and the UK.

Lucie burst onto our screens in the 2009 series of The X Factor (ITV) and has gone on to become one of the most renowned leading ladies in theatreland. Lucie made her West End debut as Cosette in Les Misérables (Queens Theatre). Her credits include: Meat in We Will Rock You (International Arena Tour), Victoria in American Psycho (Almedia Theatre), Molly in Ghost (Asian Tour), Elle Woods in Legally Blonde (Leicester Curve & UK Tour), Holly in The Wedding Singer (UK Tour), Maureen in Rent (St James Theatre & UK Tour), Lou in Girlfriends (LMTO), Heidi in Title Of Show (Digital Production), The Ghost Of Christmas Past in A Christmas Carol (Dominion Theatre) and most recently she returned to Les Misérables (Sondheim Theatre) to play Fantine in the concert production.

In 2017, Lucie represented the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv (Kiev), Ukraine. In 2020, Lucie performed a live concert to a sold-out audience at London’s Adelphi Theatre. Accompanied by the London Musical Theatre Orchestra, the concert was recorded for a live album "Lucie Jones: Live at The Adelphi".

It was recently announced that Lucie will be completing her run in Waitress in December. After leaving Waitress, Lucie will perform two Christmas concerts at St David’s Hall in Cardiff on Monday 13th December and at the West End’s Her Majesty’s Theatre on Tuesday 14th December.
