Ahead of the musical’s move into the Broadhurst Theatre, the company of Jagged Little Pill celebrated with a champagne toast at Drift Studios October 21. The Alanis Morissette musical, directed by Diane Paulus, is set to begin preview performances on Broadway November 3 ahead of a December 5 opening night.
Jagged Little Pill weaves the songs of Morissette and Glen Ballard's Grammy-winning 1995 album (plus new material) with a book by Oscar winner Diablo Cody (Juno) to tell the story of a multi-generation, multi-racial suburban family grappling with a series of distressing events. The production also features choreography by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui as well as orchestrations and arrangements by music supervisor Tom Kitt.
