Sara Bareilles Explains Why She Decided to Star in 'Waitress'

Sara Bareilles is gearing up to make her Broadway debut in the musical Waitress next weekend and she’s opening up about why she decided to star in the show she helped write.

The Grammy-nominated singer appeared alongside her future co-stars Will Swenson and Chris Diamantopoulos at a cast meet and greet on Thursday (March 23) in New York City.

“There was just a perfect storm of things that lined up,” Sara told Variety about taking over for Tony-nominated actress Jessie Mueller.

“I had originally thought that this year would get dedicated to making my next record, and I had gone into the songwriting process. And then when we got the news that Jessie was moving on, I hadn’t made a lot of headway with my own record yet and I was still sort of holding space for this show in a strange way,” Sara said. “It just felt like this was the time. I’m as close to the show as I’ll ever be. My friends are in the show. The band is the original band. Lots of things are still very similar to how it was created, and I feel like that’s the show I want to be in.”

Catch Sara in the show from March 31 until June 11 and watch a sneak peek at rehearsals below!

Selena Gomez's Mom Had a Funny Panic Moment When She Realized Sel Was a Born Actor

No surprise, Selena Gomez has acting in the blood.

In fact, it was her mother, Mandy Teefey‘s, audition that caused her mom to realize Sel was meant for the entertainment world.

This is how it happened:

A then-6-year-old Selena was accompanying Mandy to her own audition. Once mom and daughter got in the car, Selena let loose in the cutest way.

“On the way home, she was quiet, and then she goes, ‘You know, mom, that might be funnier if you did it this way,’” Mandy told the New York Times. “And I thought, Oh, no. She’s going to be an actor.”

Mandy said Selena made all of the kids in her neighborhood do casting calls and tried to direct them.

Today, Selena and Mandy have teamed up to produce their passion project, the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, which Selena did not want to star in, find out why.
