The new musical Jagged Little Pill, inspired by and featuring the songs of Alanis Morissette, officially opened at Broadway's Broadhurst Theatre December 5. Rather than tell the story of the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, the jukebox musical weaves her and Glen Ballard's tunes into an original story by Oscar winner Diablo Cody that touches on a variety of hot topics.

Diane Paulus directs the production, which stars Elizabeth Stanley, Derek Klena, Sean Allan Krill, Kathryn Gallagher, Lauren Patten, Celia Rose Gooding, and Antonio Cipriano.
