Sara Bareilles Sings 'Bad Idea' in Broadway's 'Waitress' Video
The singer-songwriter is starring in the musical she wrote through June 11.
The singer-songwriter is currently starring in the musical for which she first made her Broadway debut as a composer and lyricist. She makes her Broadway acting debut in a 10-week run through June 11, and just set a record for the Brooks Atkinson Theatre’s highest-grossing eight-show week ($ 1.2 million). The new footage captures moments from her debut performance, including the duet “Bad Idea” and standout ballad “She Used to Be Mine.”
Directed by Diane Paulus, the musical adaptation of the 2007 indie film centers on Jenna, a pregnant, unhappily married diner waitress who hopes her extraordinary pies will allow her a better life. It debuted on Broadway last March and received four Tony nominations, including one for Bareilles’ music and lyrics. The cast recording also earned a Grammy nomination for best musical theater album.
Waitress is also the first-ever Broadway musical with an all-female creative team, adding in Jessie Nelson’s book and Lorin Latarro’s choreography. The production will also kick off its national tour at Cleveland’s Playhouse Square this October.
