On May 12, Jessie Mueller taped her appearance on The Later Show With Stephen Colbert in honor of her Tony nomination for her performance in this season’s Waitress. The Tony winner (for 2014’s Beautiful) gave us exclusive backstage access to her prep at the Ed Sullivan Theater. Follow her journey behind the scenes:
We have arrived!
Welcome to my dressing room (for the day)
First things first: hair.
We call this the ‘Trying to Get as Pretty as Ryan Gosling’ phase of the evening.

Three best friends just hangin’ out with Colbert.
Two more commercial segments to go so...#photo #shoot.
