“What is that indefinable quality that makes an actor a star?
Jessie Mueller, who won a Tony in 2014 for her performance in “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical,” helped me once again answer this question. Whenever she was onstage in “Waitress,” the new Broadway musical based on the 2007 Adrienne Shelly movie, I wanted time to stop so that her performance would never have to end… the show’s heart is earned through the beauty and integrity of Mueller’s work.”
