It was a ritual in 1995. Friday nights, often feeling hopeless and ignorant about Slobodan Milošević, I would come home to my Brooklyn apartment. Diminished by a corporate day job, an unrequited love in my heart and an artist's very light pockets, I would combine flour, olive oil, yeast, salt and engage my roommate's glorious sound system with Alanis Morissette's debut album. On my hands and knees I scrubbed Murphy's Oil into my hardwood floors rising to beat, knead, repeat and bake. I would...

Following a sold-out 10-week engagement at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in the summer of 2018, Jagged Little Pill - a new musical inspired by the iconic 1995 album of the same name by seven-time Grammy Award winner Alanis Morissette - stages its Broadway premiere in fall 2019.
Directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus and featuring a book by Diablo Cody, the Oscar-winning writer of "Juno," Jagged Little Pill tells an original story about a suburban family called The Healys. Taking inspiration from the 1995 album, Cody has woven themes of empowerment, pain and healing into the plot of the musical, which also deals with topical issues such as racial identity, queer identity, addiction, and sexual assault. All these hot-button issues strikingly reflect the current social climate in the United States, rendering Jagged Little Pill perhaps the most relevant musical on the Great White Way.
Following in the footsteps of such cherished musicals as Spring Awakening and Green Day's American Idiot, Jagged Little Pill is the perfect choice for those looking for an edgy, rock-infused show that speaks at great volumes - literally and metaphorically - to a disillusioned generation longing for hope.
Upon the album release of Jagged Little Pill in June 1995, Alanis Morissette became the bestselling international debut artist in history, surpassing 24 million certified copies sold worldwide. She became an instant icon in the music industry, winning five Grammy Awards including "Album of the Year," "Best Rock Album," and "Best Rock Song" (for "You Oughta Know"). The seminal album is as appealingly timeless now as it was over two decades ago.
Fans can expect live theatrical renditions from all the album's epochal hits from "Head Over Feet," to "Hand In My Pocket," "You Learn," and "Ironic." However, the musical also includes other beloved songs from Morissette's back catalogue, such as "Hands Clean," the Grammy-nominated "Thank U," and the two-time Grammy-winning track "Uninvited," making it a must-see for Alanis Morissette aficionados across the globe.

Jagged Little Pill is an exhilarating new musical inspired by the themes and raw emotions laid bare in Alanis Morissette’s seminal album of the same name. The Healys appear to be a picture-perfect suburban family; but when the cracks beneath the surface begin to show, they must choose between maintaining the veneer, or defiantly facing truths about themselves and the world around them. Jagged Little Pill inspires audiences to look within, speak out, and connect.
