Sara Bareilles says she couldn't wait to see Joanna Ampil start making pies.
With the international premiere of the highly-acclaimed musical Waitress officially commencing its run in just less than a month, Sara Bareilles - who takes on the role of Jenna Hunterson in the original Broadway version of the musical - shared on social media her excitement over its forthcoming Manila run.
"This makes me sooooooo happy!!! Philippecan pie!! (Too much?) I’m sending you sugar butter love," Sara Bareilles wrote on Twitter upon Broadway World's announcement of its international premiere.
Apart from playing the lead role in the musical, Sara Bareilles also takes pride in making Waitress a reality as she herself is the mind behind its lyrics and music.
Meanwhile, Filipino pride Joanna Ampil - who has played several roles in West End musicals such as Miss Saigon and Les Miserables - will lead the show and play Jenna.
Also joining Ampil are Bituin Escalante and Maronne Cruz who will play Becky and Dawn, respectively.
Waitress follows the story of Jenna, a pie maker who finds her way out of her cold marriage with the help of her friends Becky and Dawn.
Waitress is set to open on November 9, 2018 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium of the RCBC Plaza.
