Jagged Little Pill

About the show

Please note that performances of Jagged Little Pill have been cancelled through 3 January 2021, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Performances will resume as early as is practical in 2021.

New jukebox musical Jagged Little Pill makes its Broadway debut this year, following a critically acclaimed premier at the American Repertory Theatre in 2018. Inspired by Alanis Morissette’s iconic album, the show plays at the Broadhurst Theatre.

The Healys project a desirable image to their suburban community: a nuclear family of mom, dad, son and daughter. But when disturbing events threaten to shake the foundations of their picture-perfect lives, the quartet face a difficult decision. Do they uphold the status quo, or face uncomfortable truths about themselves, their community and the wider world?

Jagged Little Pill plays to a soundtrack including “You Outghta Know” and “Hand in My Pocket” alongside brand-new songs written for the show.

Much of the A.R.T cast transfer to New York, including Elizabeth Stanley (On the Town), Kathryn Gallagher (Spring Awakening), Derek Klena (Anastasia), Lauren Patten (Fun Home) and Celia Rose Gooding, in her Broadway debut.

Jagged Little Pill at the Broadhurst Theatre features a book by Academy Award-winning writer Diablo Cody (Juno), with direction from Diane Paulus, who is the current Artistic Director at A.R.T. Music supervision and arrangement is provided by Tom Kitt (Next to Normal) and choreography by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.

Hailed by The New York Times as “break[ing] the jukebox musical mold”, Jagged Little Pill’s frank exploration of contemporary issues makes it a compelling new addition on Broadway. It opens in previews on November 3 2019.

A powerful and relevant show based on Alanis Morissette songs with themes of sexual violence, racism and drug addiction.

I really enjoyed the show, overall a strong cast and good ensemble. A few sound issues and the band is sometimes too loud.
