Singer and songwriter Sara Bareilles who wrote the music for the hit musical Waitress is now taking on the lead role. She’ll play the leading role of Jenna Hunterson for a 10-week run from March 31 through June 11, replacing Tony Award winner Jessie Mueller.
Sara’s childhood dreams are coming true!
Sugar, Butter, Broadway!! It is with unabashed delight that I announce that my childhood dream is coming true and I’m gonna be on Broadway!!!! I am joining the cast of WAITRESS!! (No pigtails this time.) In a few short weeks I will be stepping into the role of Jenna Hunterson, and I’m just beside myself! This show, the people who made it, and these characters have become more precious to me than I could ever say. It will be an incredible privilege to join the cast onstage and tell this beautiful story. Jessie Mueller has been an absolute dream come true in this role and I’m deeply honored to get to take a turn at embodying our beloved Jenna (and hopefully remember my lines along the way). My first show is MARCH 31. Panic attacks available now. ?
Here’s a look at Sara singing one of my favorite songs from Waitress!
Her first show starts March 31st so make sure to get your tickets!
