During previews it’s given that some things about the show would change. Even from their pre-Broadway run at A.R.T. some changes were made, a fairly noticeable one being that “Door Number Three” isn’t in the musical anymore… (sorry for spoilers)

BUT – that doesn’t mean the show is lacking anywhere. In fact, Sara even wrote a little tune to remind people to turn off their cell-phones before the show starts. You can listen below… it resembles her song “Cassiopeia” and some agree that the end has a hint of a small part in “Sweet As Whole”.

here’s a link to the song 🙂 Turn Off Your Cell Phone

 

Broadway Box Office: ‘Waitress’ Musical Is Piping Hot in Its First Week

With the Easter holiday prodding the overall Broadway box office to rise again, the new musical “Waitress” had a hearty debut, averaging a whopping $140,000 per performance in its first three previews.

Based on the 2007 Adrienne Shelly film, “Waitress” ($425,7830) is powered by a score by singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles and by the movie’s feel-good tale. It doesn’t hurt, too, that the story, centering on an unhappy waitress who enters a pie-baking contest, seems to hold clear appeal to the largely female demographic that makes up the majority of Broadway ticket buyers. In its first days on the boards, the show played to full houses and broke the box office record at the 1,045-seat Brooks Atkinson Theater for a single performance, reporting $145,532 for its first preview.

 

March 25th was the start of previews for Waitress and things went pretty well. Even the technical issues on March 31st led to a special show for the audience.

 

How to kill time while a problem gets fixed? Have your Grammy-nominated songwriter charm the crowd.

-Lonnie Firestone, Vanity Fair

 

Also, check out the video in the link below from Broadway World!

 

Molly Hager, who was in charge of the Waitress Musical SnapChat that night, along with Sara herself also captured the moments of the unplanned mini show. Here’s a compilation video in case you missed it!

It may not be a surprise to fellow Sara fans that this pause in the show led her to sing “Part of Your World”, although we later find out that Sara will play Ariel in two of the upcoming shows of ‘The Little Mermaid’ at Hollywood Bowl. (more on this later)

As previews and opening day get closer I’m sure we’ll be seeing more in the media, in fact the ladies of Waitress had a photo shoot with Vanity Fair (in which Sara posted a video from on her Instagram).

 

(Link to video on Sara’s IG)

Jessie Mueller, who also played Jenna during the musicals run at A.R.T. in Boston, admits she’s a fan of Sara and mentioned it in an interview with Broadway Direct after talking about becoming familiar with Carole King’s music for her part as Carole in the musical Beautiful.

“I’ve liked her work for a long time now, ever since ‘Love Song’ came out. I realize now that she always gets inside the story of something, and that’s why her work translates so well to a musical. She is such an amazing blend — she has the pop sensibility that makes her writing so good, but also a sense of character that I’ve been blown away with.”

On Monday October 5th, the day before the release of Sounds Like Me Sara was keeping busy pre book tour with a radio show, and a couple question and answer sessions via Twitter with fans.

Sara was on NPRs On Point with Tom Ashbrook talking about the misconception of how Love Song came to be, as well as deeper topics about self love and finding out who she is as an artist.

some memorable quotes:

I think I arrived at a place in my life where I’m craving more depth.

I learned that you can actually play too many shows, and then your audience becomes your roommate and your aunt.

I feel a little like I have an old soul, although I am competing in a “contemporary music world.”

I’m someone who feels very deeply for the human experience. It’s easy for me to access sadness.

If I could be a icon for positive self-speak, I’d like to hear that, since I need it, too.

The podcast can be found and downloaded here on the shows website and also here on iTunes

 

Sara also answered questions through VH1 Musics twitter which can be seen in the picture below!

Sara has also filmed her answers to fan questions for Vevo Ask:Reply. The video for this hasn’t been posted yet but will be uploaded on Vevo’s YouTube page so keep an eye out! Hope you’re all enjoying the book!
