NEW YORK (AP) — Sara Bareilles is part of a history-making team on Broadway. She wrote the music for the new Broadway show, “Waitress,” based on the 2007 film. It’s the first time the top four creative spots for a Broadway show have been filled by four women. The others are choreographer Lorin Latarro, director Diane Paulus and book writer Jessie Nelson. Bareilles says they are a bunch of women who are “deeply committed to finding a way to build a unified vision.” Previews for “Waitress” begin in March. “Waitress” has four women in the helm, but it’s not the first to have all four creative spots filled by a woman. The 1978 Broadway musical “Runaways” was written, scored, choreographed and directed by Elizabeth Swados.
