Sara Bareilles Doesn't Think She'll Win a Tony for 'Waitress'

Sara Bareilles makes an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday night (May 12) in New York City.

The singer-songwriter and Waitress composer was joined by Transparent actress Judith Light on the episode of Andy Cohen‘s late night talk show.

Sara was asked if she’s nervous to go up against Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda in the Best Original Score category at the Tonys this year.

“Nervous is not the right word. I think, I’m such a huge fan of Hamilton and of the show and of Lin’s in particular. I’m not actually a very competitive person. What I like about the awards season is that it brings attention to the theatre and I grew up on musical theatre and so I just love that people are paying attention and I think that because of the gift of Hamilton there’s a whole new set of eyes paying attention to what has been this incredible legacy of people working in the theatre for decades and decades. So I’m going to help him carry his Tony’s home and I’m really ok with that. It’s all good,” Sara said.

Watch Sara talk about her experience as a judge on The Sing-Off below.

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.
