Sara Bareilles Records Turn-Off-Your-Phone Song for Broadway's 'Waitress' - Listen Now!

Sara Bareilles wrote the music and lyrics for the new Broadway show Waitress and she also recorded a fun “turn-off-your-phone” song that plays before the start of the musical!

The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter decided to write the song after a cell phone went off during an important moment of an early preview performance.

“The team and I spoke after the show, and I suggested a cell phone announcement that I would write and sing myself. I decided to rewrite the words to a song of mine called ‘Cassiopeia,’ and try to make something funny, in the style of the show, but that would still get the point across,” Sara told the Associated Press.
