Sara Bareilles brings 'Love Song' and more to Mohegan Sun
She’s not going to write you a love song.
Nah, actually, she totally is. Bareilles broke through in 2007 with “Love Song,” and, since then, she has continued finding success in various aspects of showbiz. She had another big single with “Brave” and segued into Broadway musicals, writing the songs for the popular stage adaptation of the movie “Waitress,” which earned her Tony and Grammy nominations.
Last year, she played Mary Magdalene on television, in NBC’s live version of “Jesus Christ Superstar.” She earned an Emmy nomination for her performance and a Grammy nod for best musical theater album for the recording of that show.
In other words, she could pull from all areas of her career for her set list when she performs Saturday at the Mohegan Sun Arena. Sure to be included: a number or two from the album she released earlier this year. “Amidst the Chaos” debuted at #6 on the Billboard 200, making it her sixth release to hit the top 10.
Sara Bareilles, 8 p.m. Saturday, Mohegan Sun Arena; with Emily King; $39-$79; 1-800-745-3000.
