Sara Bareilles Evokes Early Broadway In “She Used To Be Mine” Video

Sara Bareilles recently released her new single, “She Used To Be Mine,” from her upcoming themed album. What’s Inside: Songs From Waitress features twelve songs that Sara wrote for the new musical, Waitress, which goes to Broadway next spring. Waitress is based on the 2007 indie movie of the same name. It follows Jenna, a pregnant waitress trapped in an abusive marriage. She longs for a better life, and may find one when a nice doctor comes into town at just the right time.

“She Used To Be Mine” is an important point in the musical, and it now has a proper music video that’s just as impactful. Sara is contemplative throughout the black-and-white video, writing in her journal as she sits in front of a Hollywood vanity by herself. She looks the most free when she’s at her piano, crooning the introspective ballad on an empty stage, but ends up lonely sitting on the outdoor stairs. It’s a lovely video that evokes old-time performance, a nod to the Broadway-bound musical for which it was written.
