This past weekend was the first ever Broadway Con and Waitress was able to be a part of it! On the conventions last day, January 24th, Playbill’s Blake Ross had a discussion with Diane Paulus, Jessie Nelson and Sara about the much-anticipated musical. Afterwards Sara had an impromptu performance of “She Used To Be Mine”.
Recently announced, more members of the Waitress cast had been filled in and of course waitressthemusical.com had the list of cast & crew for us. While the picture may be below, you should head over to the website to learn more about both the cast and crew ( their pictures and names are clickable on the website).
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).
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.”
