Alanis Morissette and Her Broadway Cast Preview Jagged Little Pill
On Tuesday night, the cast and creative team of the Broadway-bound Alanis Morissette musical, Jagged Little Pill, offered the press a preview performance and panel discussion at Haswell Green's in Manhattan. Take a look at photos from the special event below.
Leading the Broadway cast of Jagged Little Pill are 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), all of whom 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.
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."
Performances will begin at the Broadhurst Theatre on Sunday, November 3, ahead of an official opening night on Thursday, December 5.
