Sara Bareilles and her Waitress musical are heading to Broadway. Prepare to be moved to tears by her emotional songs under the dizzying lights of the White Way.

The play, an adaptation of the 2007 film starring Felicityā€™s Keri Russell, will begin in April 2016 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, according to Billboard.

Waitress is currently playing at Harvard Universityā€™s American Repertory Theater and starring Jessie Muller. Muller won a Tony Award in 2014 for best leading actress in a musical for her role in Carole Kingā€™s Beautiful. Itā€™s unclear whether Muller will join the Broadway cast but director Diane Paulus, who is helming the play currently, will join the next run.

This is wonderful news for people who like to listen to ā€œVegasā€ and cry by themselves. Just me? Oh. Cool.
