Harrison will make his final performance on September 7 and Sugg starts as Ogie from September 9.

Waitress tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie-maker who dreams her way out of a loveless marriage.

It premiered on Broadway in March 2016 and has since become the longest-running show in the history of the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.

It opened at the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End earlier this year.
