Jagged Little Pill
Sydney audiences will be the first to see Jagged Little Pill since Covid-19 restrictions closed theatre doors on Broadway last year.
Opening in September 2021 (exact dates TBC), the award-winning musical takes songs and lyrics from the groundbreaking album by Alanis Morissette that had kids screaming You Oughta Know at the top of their lungs in the ’90s.
Though the album that catapulted Morissette to global success was released in 1995, the musical’s themes are grounded in what it means to be American today. It follows the story of a suburban family striving to hide the cracks beneath the surface when a troubling event shakes their community.
Using tracks like Hand in My Pocket and Ironic, as well as a couple of new songs written by Morissette, the musical is centred around the good that comes when people come together. The uplifting show was nominated for 15 Tony Awards and won a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.
Jagged Little Pill will be the first show to play at the refurbished Theatre Royal in Sydney – the King Street theatre closed in 2016 as part of the MLC Centre’s upgrades.
