With an original story by Diablo Cody (JunoTully), Jagged Little Pill features songs from Morissette’s catalog along with new numbers penned by her and Glen Ballard. The show premiered in the summer of 2018 at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Director Diane Paulus, best known for Waitress, will guide the production onto the New York stage, which will also mark Cody’s Broadway debut.

The story follows a family called the Healys. On the surface, they seem to be living the perfect suburban life, but when “the cracks beneath the surface begin to show, they must choose between maintaining the veneer, or defiantly facing truths about themselves and the world around them.”

The Broadway production will star Kathryn Gallagher (Spring Awakening), newcomer Celia Rose Gooding, Derek Klena (Anastasia), Sean Allan Krill (Honeymoon in Vegas), Lauren Patten (Fun Home) and Drama Desk Award Nominee Elizabeth Stanley (On the Town) all of whom reprise their roles from the musical’s premiere at American Repertory Theater (A.R.T) last summer.

To coincide with the musical’s Broadway premiere, Atlanta Records will release a cast recording album.
