We all love a jukebox musical, but it's even more exciting when a pop star writes an original score for the Broadway stage. In Waitress, that score is written by Sara Bareilles, the singer-songwriter behind many radio hits - including "Love Song," "King of Anything," and "Brave." By writing the music for Waitress, Bareilles was able to write songs for a whole range of characters and emotions. It's thrilling to watch an artist stretch new musical muscles, and the resulting score is fresh, dynamic, and deeply personal.
After a short cameo by Sara Bareilles herself, watch as the current star Betsy Wolfe sings one of the score's most heart-wrenching ballads. "Everything Changes" takes place near the end of the musical, but it's emotion makes just as much sense of out context.
