Singer-songwriters, collaborators, and friends Sara Bareilles and Jason Mraz will sing together again on stage for two weeks in the Broadway musical Waitress at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, Playbill reports.
Bareilles made her Broadway debut earlier this year in the lead role of the show, for which she wrote the Tony and Grammy nominated score. She now returns to the role for a limited engagement from January 16 to February 25, following Betsy Wolfe’s final bow on January 9.
Grammy winning singer Jason Mraz, who also made his Broadway debut this year, joined the Waitress cast as Dr. Pommater on November 6, and was scheduled to wrap his ten-week stint on January 14. Now, he has extended his engagement to share the stage opposite Bareilles until January 28.

The current cast also features Tony nominees Will Swenson and Christopher Fitzgerald as Earl and Ogie, respectively, Eric Anderson as Cal, Maia Nkenge Wilson as Becky, Caitlin Houlahan as Dawn, and John Cullum as Joe.
The musical’s website provides the following description of the show:
Inspired by Adrienne Shelly’s beloved film, WAITRESS tells the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker who dreams of a way out of her small town and loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the town’s new doctor may offer her a chance at a fresh start, while her fellow waitresses offer their own recipes for happiness. But Jenna must summon the strength and courage to rebuild her own life.
See the all-star pair perform together in Waitress from January 16-28.
