Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles takes Broadway this fall with her new musical Waitress. With songs by Bareilles and a book by Jessie Nelson, the tuner, inspired by Adrienne Shelley's 2007 film, stars Tony winner Jessie Mueller as Jenna, a waitress and ace pie-maker at a down-home diner. Mueller and her fellow cast members, Tony nominees Keala Settle and Christopher Fitzgerald, Kimiko Glenn, and Drew Gehling, took a break from rehearsals to give us a first taste of the sweet show. It's guaranteed to leave you hungry for more.
