Jagged Little Pill tells an original story inspired by the themes and emotions laid bare in Alanis Morissette’s Grammy Award-winning album that introduced countless anthems, including “Ironic,” “You Oughta Know,” and “Hand In My Pocket.” Following a family grappling with uncomfortable truths about many of the urgent issues deeply affecting our communities and our world today, this world premiere musical is directed by Diane Paulus (Waitress, Finding Neverland, Pippin, The Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess) and features a book by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (Juno).
