The Cast of Broadway’s Jagged Little Pill Recalls Their First Introduction to Alanis Morrissette
September 9th, 2019
by Josh Ferri
The best breakup album of all time (@me about it) is Alanis Morissette’s Grammy Award-winning Jagged Little Pill. The seminal 1995 album is somewhere between a touchstone and a religious text for people in their 30s and 40s. This November, those iconic songs arrive on Broadway in the new musical Jagged Little Pill. The edgy and current musical tells the original story of the picture-perfect Healy family and the dark realities that lie just beneath the surface. The musical has a dream team behind it with a book by Oscar winner Diablo Cody (Juno, The United States of Tara), direction by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin), and Next to Normal Tony winner Tom Kitt working with Alanis to bring the music to the stage.
Scroll on as the stars of the show share their memories of the first time they heard Alanis Morissette’s music.
