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."
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."
"'Jagged Little Pill' Is Missing the Essence of Alanis"
"Diablo Cody spins an original feminist story of heartache, hurt, anger and activism around Alanis Morissette's smash 1995 album in this musical ensemble drama directed by Tony winner Diane Paulus."
Grade: B. "'Jagged Little Pill' arrives on Broadway as a musical with angst to spare"
"Alanis Morissette’s 1995 alt-rock album turns up on Broadway in a story that seems to spring organically from the music."
"‘Jagged Little Pill’ Review: Hard to Swallow: A show inspired by Alanis Morissette’s grunge-flavored pop album about teenage love and life is no cure for juke-box musicals’ ills."
"'You Oughta Know' is the thrilling highlight of the musical-which also points up the flaws in everything around it."
