Sara Bareilles Gets Ready to Make Her "Surreal" Broadway Debut in Waitress

Bareilles and her two new onstage lovers, Will Swenson and Chris Diamantopoulos, get ready to take the stage in her musical.

Sara Bareilles is only a little worried that she's gonna pee her pants. And if she takes the stage of the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on March 31 in her musical Waitress and she doesn't, she'll consider it a win. The Grammy- and Tony-nominated singer-songwriter is getting ready to make her Broadway debut as Jenna alongside two stage veterans also entering the company, Will Swenson and Chris Diamantopoulos, who will play her onstage love interests Earl and Dr. Pomatter, respectively. At a recent press junket, they discussed their excitement, fear, and all the good ingredients in between.
