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.
