Show Description

From Academy Award-winning writer Diablo Cody (Juno) comes an “urgent, wildly entertaining, and wickedly funny” (The Boston Globe) original story of suburban subversion inspired by Alanis Morissette’s Grammy Award-winning album. 

Mary Jane Healy is a high-achieving homemaker who will do anything for her family, including their adopted African-American daughter Frankie, who is struggling to find her place in their lily-white community. But when the Healys' lives begin to unravel, Mary Jane’s drive to keep her family together threatens to break them apart. 

Featuring Morissette’s iconic songs, including “Ironic,” “You Oughta Know,” and “Hand in My Pocket,” as well as newly written material, this “big-hearted musical that breaks the mold” (The New York Times) is directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin), with music supervision, orchestrations, and arrangements by Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt (Next to Normal), and movement direction and choreography by Olivier Award winner and frequent Beyoncé collaborator Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.

Hailed as “triumphant and moving” by Variety, Jagged Little Pill comes to Broadway after a record-breaking run at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

It’s a double Christmas miracle. Broadway has a new star—Lauren Patten—and a jukebox musical that really is different and sets a standard for others to aspire to the same; and one that is as provocatively written as it is beautifully performed.The neatness of that compliment doesn’t do justice to the charged, confrontational, uncompromising excellence of the American Repertory Theater production of Jagged Little Pill,

FOUR STARS

What makes it so good? It’s the ideal exemplar of a certain sort of jukebox musical, one that hangs an artist’s catalogue onto a fictional story, often to laughable result. (See: Everyone from the lovelorn Spring Breakers of Escape to Margaritaville to the wandering cowboy of Ring of Fire.) Here, in the hands of Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody, Jagged Little Pill fashions a story with characters that are actually compelling: A modern, seemingly all-American, upper-middle-class family, in which all the members have their own problems. A cynical theatergoer, weary of this kind of jukeboxer, might well find himself surprised to be emotionally engaged in the story.

NYT CRITIC'S PICK

The overhauled version that opened on Thursday at the Broadhurst Theater is fully in focus: clear in its priorities, rich in character, sincere without syrup, rousing and real. It easily clears the low bar of jukebox success to stand alongside the dark original musicals that have been sustaining the best hopes of Broadway in recent years.
