James M. Nederlander Theatre | Chicago, Illinois
It is the performance everyone is talking about. It is the rock phenomenon – Jagged Little Pill! This April, Chicago will host the iconic Jagged Little Pill for an evening of magic proportions. The show is so dense with plot that could have sustained solely on the classic 12 songs from Morissette’s seminal, Diamond-certified 1995 album that gives the performance its title. You’ll hear all of them framed within inspired contexts: “Ironic” is sung in a high school writing workshop, “Forgiven” is an act-one curtain closer set in a church that dramatizes an unsettling turning point in Mary Jane’s spiraling pill addiction. The show also features nine other favorites from Morissette’s later repertoire, including “Hands Clean,” “Thank U,” and “Uninvited.” Plus, two new songs have been written for the occasion, “Smiling” and “Predator.”! Prepare to immerse yourself in the incredible storyline Jagged Little Pill and be taken to the world this performance has prepared for you. Save the date, Wednesday 19th April 2023, and get your tickets quick!
When you step into a theatre, it's like going into a completely different world. You could be absolutely anywhere, and you could have travelled back hundreds of years and the outside world completely stops existing for a few hours. There are no irritating adverts, no boring trailers; when that curtain goes down you're thrown straight into the action, and for those two hours, you can sit back, relax and savour as the story unfolds in front of you. You can chuckle, cry, even sing along if you want to! The theater is simply something everyone must watch once in their life, especially when brand new musicals like Jagged Little Pill are coming! Inspired by Alanis Morissette’s Grammy Award-winning spectacle, JAGGED LITTLE PILL brings to the stage the “humanly recognizable and magnificently staged story” of the Healys, a suburban family whose serene Connecticut lives collide head-on with some of the most burning issues of today! So come down to the incredible Nederlander Theatre at Ford Center for the Performing Arts and see any of the breathtaking shows available!
