Not many Broadway performers are given the opportunity to reprise a past role from their favorite Broadway show, but Katie Webber is an exception to the standard. After performing in Rock of Ages on Broadway and in Las Vegas, she returns to New World Stages to reprise her role as Waitress #1.

Rock of Ages is one of Webber’s many Broadway credits. Audiences may have seen her in Charlie in the Chocolate FactoryHoneymoon in Vegas, Jersey Boys and more. Not only is she a full-time performer, she is a wife and mom with a fantastic website where she shares plant-based recipes and a look into her life. 

The story of how Webber was cast is quite simple.

She shared, “Kelly Devine sent me a text that said ‘How would you feel about bringing Waitress #1 back to life at New World Stages?’ I texted her back within about two seconds and said, ‘I’m in, when do we start?’ Not even a second thought!”

Webber didn’t have to think twice about seizing this opportunity. She said Rock of Ages, “lights me up and makes me feel like a really good version of myself.”

Everything came rushing back to Webber as she stepped into the show for the third time. It even felt fresh.

She said, “It feels better than ever to be back. I get to improve on things that maybe I wasn’t as strong at before, and I also get to work on some things that used to be easy for me that are more of a challenge now.” Not many people can say they’ve done that. 

Her role as Mom is helping her gain new insights too and breathe new energy into the production.

“Being a mom is so grounding and puts everything into perspective. I push less in my role now. I feel confident just being me, and it feels so good!”

She is continually working to stay present on stage and make new connections with her fellow cast members. Returning to the show gives her the chance to experience the show with a new set of actors. Her favorite memory of working on Rock of Ages on Broadway was the people, and her show family will only continue to grow with the current production at New World Stages.
