Inspired by the themes and raw emotions laid bare in Alanis Morissette’s Grammy Award-winning album, this new Broadway musical tells an original story about pain, healing, and empowerment. More…
From the show:
“Redemptive, rousing, and real, JAGGED LITTLE PILL stands alongside the original musicals that have sustained the best hopes of Broadway." (The New York Times, Critic’s Pick)
Inspired by Alanis Morissette’s Grammy Award-winning masterpiece, JAGGED LITTLE PILL brings to the stage the “humanly recognizable and magnificently staged story” (The Daily Beast) of the Healys, a suburban family whose serene Connecticut lives collide head-on with some of the most burning issues of today.
Through explosive choreography and the raw power of an onstage band, JAGGED LITTLE PILL creates a spellbinding musical experience that lifts its audience from moments of quiet, tender intimacy to pure rock ‘n’ roll release. The result is an electric, fearless look at what it means to be alive in 21st century America and an urgent call for us to come together even as the world pushes us apart.
“JAGGED LITTLE PILL is a show you want to shout about,” writes Variety, “a galvanic production that feels very much of the moment — this moment.”
