Jagged Little Pill Musical to Open on Broadway This Fall

-

Producers Vivek J. Tiwary, Arvind Ethan David, and Eva Price have announced that the new Jagged Little Pill musical will begin preview performances on Broadway at the Broadhurst Theatre (235 W 44th St., NYC) on Sunday, November 3, 2019, with an official opening night of Thursday, December 5, 2019.

Tickets for the musical will go on sale to the general public on Thursday, May 23, at 10:00AM at Telecharge.com. Special pre-sale access to tickets will be available to members of the Jagged Little Pill fan club from May 6–8, American Express Cardholders from May 8–16, and Audience Rewards from May 16-23.


Featuring lyrics by seven-time Grammy Award winner Alanis Morissette and music by Morissette and six-time Grammy winner Glen Ballard, the Jagged Little Pill musical is directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin) and features an original story by Academy Award-winning writer Diablo Cody (Juno, Tully). Movement Direction & Choreography is by Olivier Award winner and frequent Beyoncé collaborator Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, and Musical Supervision, Orchestrations and Arrangements are by Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt (Next to Normal, American Idiot).

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 looks can be deceiving. When the cracks beneath the surface begin to show, they must choose between maintaining the status quo or facing harsh truths about themselves, their community, and the world around them. The original story is ignited by Morissette’s groundbreaking music — including such hits as “You Oughta Know,” “Head Over Feet,” “Hand In My Pocket,” and “Ironic” — plus brand-new songs written for the show.

Atlantic Records has partnered with Jagged Little Pill for the release of the Original Broadway Cast Recording, adding the production to the label’s elite roster of Grammy Award-winning artists and cast albums.

The world premiere production of the Jagged Little Pill musical ran for 79 sold-out performances, from May 5 – July 15, 2018, at American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, MA. The 10-week engagement marked the longest-running and highest-grossing production in the theater’s history.

Released on June 13, 1995, the tremendous success of Alanis Morissette’s album Jagged Little Pill skyrocketed her to become the bestselling international debut artist in history; a title she still holds, with the record’s sales reaching 33 million copies worldwide. Nearly 25 years after its release, Jagged Little Pill continues to be one of the Top 20 Best-Selling Albums of All Time. With nine eclectic and acclaimed albums released over the subsequent twenty years, Morissette’s music has garnered seven Grammy Awards (with 14 nominations), a Golden Globe nomination, and total sales of over 60 million albums.

The Jagged Little Pill creative team includes Tony-nominated Scenic Designer Riccardo Hernandez (Parade); Costume Designer Emily Rebholz (Dear Evan Hansen); Tony-nominated Lighting Designer Justin Townsend (Moulin Rouge!); Tony-nominated Sound Designer Jonathan Deans (Waitress); and Tony-winning Video & Projection Designer Finn Ross (Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-Time). The production features additional music by Michael Farrell & Guy Sigsworth. Production Stage Management is by Ira Mont (The Producers).
