Broadway's Waitress will welcome Erich Bergen as Dr. Pomatter beginning June 5 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. His run in the show will conclude August 12.

Waitress marks Bergen's Broadway debut. He currently costars as Blake Moran on the CBS drama Madam Secretary, and played the role of Bob Gaudio in the film, national tour, and Las Vegas productions of Jersey Boys.

Inspired by Adrienne Shelly's 2007 motion picture, Waitress tells the story of Jenna, an expert pie maker in a small town who dreams of a way out of her loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town's new doctor may offer her a chance at a new life, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes to happiness. But Jenna must find the courage and strength within herself to rebuild her life.

Waitress features a book by Jessie Nelson, score by Sara Bareilles, choreography by Lorin Latarro, and direction by Diane Paulus.
