Jagged Little Pill, the musical production based on Alanis Morissette‘s hit 1995 studio album, will make its Broadway debut this fall and winter. Morissette shared the news of the musical’s forthcoming arrival to Broadway with a post to her Facebook on Friday, stating the production will open at the Broadhurst Theatre on December 5th. Previews for the show will begin on November 3rd.
The musical premiered last year with a reported sold-out run at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, MA. The musical, along with its accompanying book, was directed/written by Diane Paulus. Jagged Little Pill also features choreography from Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, and musical supervision/orchestrations/arrangements of Morissette’s music by Tom Kitt.
Eva Price, one of the show’s producers, also told the New York Times that their show would be revised for its Broadway premiere later on this year.
“We were quite happy with the work we did on our original musical, but you can always keep improving,” Price said of the show’s initial reception. “The changes we have made are many, many little ones that add up to a more streamlined, layered, and deeper show. The world has continued to change, and that has affected the writing and the direction.”
The musical’s storyline follows the Healys, a seemingly perfect suburban family grappling with uncomfortable truths about many of the urgent issues deeply affecting our communities and our world today, including struggles with prescription pain medication, according to Broadway.com.
