Tony winner Jessie Mueller and composer Sara Bareilles were part of an August 23 live performance and signing of the original cast album of the Broadway musical Waitress.
Bareilles introduced several songs from the show, including “What Baking Can Do.” Originally titled “Door Number Three,” the song was re-imaged following the musical's premiere at the American Repertory Theater last summer.
