Sara Bareilles, Meg Toohey and ‘Waitress’ Band Remember Nick Cordero on Moving ‘Lucky Streak’


Bareilles and Toohey are accompanied by the band from the musical (written by Bareilles), which includes Nadia Digiallonardo, Rich Mercurio, Lee Nadel, Yair Evnine and Adam Kaufmann.

“Nick was an incredibly vibrant and fun-loving guy,” Toohey told People about her friend, a beloved Broadway actor who was nominated for a Tony Award and a Drama Desk Award for his role in Bullets Over Broadway; he originated the role of Earl in the Broadway production of Waitress.

“He loved music and loved performing. He also loved hanging ‘as one of us’ in the band room at Waitress and would talk about his band and guitars,” Toohey said. “The entire cast and crew loved him dearly and he brought an incredible positive light to any experience he was part of.” Bareilles said getting to sing Toohey’s “gorgeous” tribute to Cordero was “a gift.” The singer said she was weeping as she laid down her vocals.

“This song is cathartic… beautiful and bittersweet and speaks of the pain of love and loss and the gently universal truth that we must hold it all lightly and enjoy our lucky streaks; these perfectly imperfect lives. What a song,” she told the magazine.
