Bareilles will take over for current star Jessie Mueller on March 31st for a 10 week stint as Jenna, a pie-making prodigy and waitress trying to get out of an abusive relationship.

Her note continued, "In a few short weeks I will be stepping into the role of Jenna Hunterson, and I'm just beside myself!" Bareilles wrote in an Instagram post this morning. "I have my Jenna name tag on, I'm learning my lines, and I am getting ready to share this handsome story with you, as a different kind of storyteller this time", she told fans.

The current cast of Waitress also includes Drew Gehling as Dr. Pomatter, Christopher Fitzgerald as Ogie, Charity Angel Dawson as Becky, Caitlin Houlahan as Dawn, Dakin Matthews as Joe, William Popp as Earl and Eric Anderson as Cal. Mueller's final performance will take place on March 26th. "It will be an incredible privilege to join the cast onstage and tell this lovely story".

Bareilles rose to mainstream acclaim in 2007 with the tune "Love Song", which earned her two Grammy nominations in 2009.

I've learnt a fair bit along the way as captain. "The previous year has been a roller-coaster ride with regard to results". It could be argued that the Australian batsmen failed to find the right balance between attack and defence at the time .

The play is completely brought to life by an all-female creative team. The Grammy and Tony nominee will take on the main role of Jenna Hunterson, which was originated by Tony victor Jessie Mueller.

The recording artist wrote the music and lyrics for the show about a pregnant, small-town pie baker, who is trapped in a dead-end marriage and falls in love with her obstetrician. She released an album of herself singing all of the songs from Waitress back in 2015, before the show even premiered.

Bareilles has already performed numerous songs on her album What's Inside: Songs from Waitress, which she released six months before the musical debuted.
