Loud, Multipal issues, Untraditional dancing, Excessive orchestration, Notable computerized sets

See it if you're interested in new on stage technology, dark themed musicals, acrobatic dance or the music of Alanis Morissette.

Don't see it if you're hopping for light entertainment not rape, drug abuse & racism. Its difficult to hear lyrics accompanied by overproduced orchestration

Relevant, Intense, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you want to see 2 fine performances by Stanley & Patten. Also, this is one of the best juke box musicals as there is a cohesive book.

Don't see it if you do not like the music of Morissette. Also, if don't like musicals that are "downers". Many serious themes are explored in this show.

Thought-provoking, Great writing, Great staging, Great singing, Clever

See it if you liked Next to Normal, Dear Evan.This isn't quite as good,but it's one of those rare musicals that has an important point to make.

Don't see it if you are looking for The Producers.I didn't know any of her music, & I was very pleasantly surprised at how good the show is.It is a gem.

CRITIC’S PICK "With ‘Jagged Little Pill,’ They Finally Fixed the Jukebox: Alanis Morissette’s 'ironic' fury finds a perfect Broadway musical setting in Diablo Cody’s fiery indictment of, well, everything."

For a previous production

3/5 stars. "Directed by Diane Paulus, Jagged Little Pill has moments of exciting stagecraft and performance…But the show has a faintly medicinal flavor...What gets lost in the mix is Morissette's individual voice-the sound of one person insisting on the right to be different things at the same time."
