The full cast is now set for the world premiere of Jagged Little Musical, the new musical inspired by Alanis Morissette’s 1995 album of the same name. The American Repertory Theater production, helmed by Artistic Director Diane Paulus, kicks off May 5 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Joining the previously announced Elizabeth Stanley as Mary Jane are Derek Klena (currently in Anastasia) as Nick, Lauren Patten (Fun Home) as Jo, Sean Allan Krill (Honeymoon in Vegas) as Steve, and newcomer Celia Gooding (daughter of Tony winner LaChanze) as Frankie.
Klena plays his final performance as Dmitry in Broadway's Anastasia March 25; understudy Zach Adkins will assume the role full-time as Klena departs the production.
Rounding out the ensemble are previously reported Laurel Harris, Logan Hart, Soph MEnas, and Nora Schell, as well as Jane Bruce, John Cardoza, Antonio Cipriano, Kathryn Gallagher, Max Kumangai, Sean Montgomery, Whitney Sprayberry, Kei Tsuruharatani, and Ebony Williams. Yeman Josiah Brown and Kelsey Orem serve as swings.
Featuring a book by Oscar winner Diablo Cody, Jagged Little Pill will use the Morissette catalog to tell an original story that follows a modern, multi-generational family and explores gender and racial identity.
The production will feature music direction by Bryan Perri, sets by Riccardo Hernandez, costumes by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Justin Townsend, sound design by Jonathan Deans, and video/projection design by Finn Ross.
Performances are currently scheduled through July 15.
