You oughta know–a new hit musical is in town! Jagged Little Pill, an exhilarating broadway musical based on Alanis Morissette’s iconic 1995 album, hits the Benedum Center January 24th-29th. It’s a tremendous story of joy and heartache, with themes of trauma, addiction, empowerment, healing. You live, you learn!
Since opening on Broadway in December 2019, the exciting show has won two Tony awards, receiving 15 nominations. It’s directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulua (Waitress, Pippin, upcoming 1776) and written by Diablo Cody (Juno). This show is very inspiring, and the music was meant to be on the stage all these years later.
For those of us that remember 1995, it was dominated by the album Jagged Little Pill. The songs resonated with the youth of America. Each song off that album was incredible, ranging from the intensity of “You Oughta Know ” to the catchy melody of “Hand in my Pocket”. You’d hear the songs on the radio, at the mall, and in your car! The album won five Grammy awards, including album of the year.
Now fast forward all these years later. The hit musical has inspired a new generation of fans. The New York Times talked about the powerful show. “Redemptive, rousing and real, Jagged Little Pill stands alongside the original musicals that have sustained the best hopes of Broadway.”
Along with an engaging story, you’ll get to hear all of those classic pop hits, performed by a very talented cast. The North American tour runs through August. As the production says, “Some shows you see. This show you feel.”
The Hollywood Reporter calls it, “Electrifying, visceral, and stunning. Jagged Little Pill takes a stand against complacency.”
Rolling Stone Magazine raves, “Jagged Little Pill burns with passion. I want to see it again and again.”
