Coinciding with the first Broadway preview of Jagged Little Pill November 3, the production inspired by the Alanis Morissette album of the same name released a music video of the song “You Learn,” chronicling the road to the Main Stem. The show officially opens at the Broadhurst Theatre December 5.
The video follows where the musical began, at American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts, through rehearsals for Broadway, stints in the recording studio, and more.
Directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Pippin), the musical features a book by Diablo Cody (Juno) with music by Morissette and Glen Ballard and lyrics by Morissette. (The musical features the songs from the 1995 Grammy-winning album, plus additional original songs.)

Joining her are Derek Klena (Anastasia) as Nick, Sean Allan Krill (Honeymoon in Vegas) as Steve, Kathryn Gallagher (Spring Awakening) as Bella, Lauren Patten (Fun Home) as Jo, and Celia Rose Gooding and Antonio Cipriano in their Broadway debuts as Frankie and Phoenix.
