Stanley, Kathryn Gallagher, and more will reprise their roles from the American Repertory Theater world premiere of the Alanis Morissette musical.
The original Broadway cast of the Alanis Morissette musical Jagged Little Pill has been announced. Performances will begin at the Broadhurst Theatre on Sunday, November 3, ahead of an official opening night on Thursday, December 5.
Kathryn Gallagher (Spring Awakening), newcomer Celia Rose Gooding, Derek Klena (Anastasia), Sean Allan Krill (Honeymoon in Vegas), Lauren Patten (Fun Home), and Elizabeth Stanley (On the Town) will reprise their roles from the musical's world premiere at American Repertory Theater last summer. The rest of the Broadway company will include Yeman Brown, Jane Bruce, John Cardoza, Antonio Cipriano, Ken Clark, Laurel Harris, Logan Hart, Max Kumangai, Heather Lang, Ezra Menas, Kelsey Orem, Nora Schell, Kei Tsuruharatani, and Ebony Williams.
The new musical has a score by Morissette and Glen Ballard, with direction by Diane Paulus; a book by Diablo Cody; movement direction and choreography by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui; and musical supervision, orchestrations, and arrangements by Tom Kitt.
Featured on the creative team are scenic designer Riccardo Hernandez, costume designer Emily Rebholz, lighting designer Justin Townsend, sound designer Jonathan Deans, and video and projection designer Finn Ross. The production features additional music by Mike Farrell and Guy Sigsworth.
Inspired by the album of the same title, Jagged Little Pill is described as follows: "The Healys appear to be a picture-perfect suburban family; 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."
