Excerpts From Broadway's Jagged Little Pill Are Streaming for Free
It will be hosted by Alanis Morissette herself.
(SPOT.ph) When it was announced that Alanis Morissette was coming to Manila in April, '90s teens everywhere went on a quick flashback to days of playing the album Jagged Little Pill on full blast. But the two-night concert by the Canadian-American singer was one of the many much-awaited events that was postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Until a new date is revealed, all we can do is listen to her songs on repeat—or catch You Live, You Learn: A Night with Alanis Morissette and Jagged Little Pill on May 19, 8 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time) or May 20, 8 a.m. (Philippine Standard Time). It features talk-backs and exclusive performances from the musical Jagged Little Pill, which opened at Broadhurst Theater in New York City on December 5, 2019.
Hosted by Morissette herself, the show hopes to collect donations for The Actors Fund—an organization supporting artists and behind-the-scenes workers in performing arts and entertainment. Ten percent of merchandise and cast album sales also go directly to the fund. This is especially helpful for workers in New York as Broadway theaters are expected to keep their doors shuttered until September 6.
Jagged Little Pill follows a picture-perfect Connecticut couple with two kids, whose life turns out to be not so perfect after all. It takes Morissette’s songs to tell the story of this suburban family that's just trying to survive despite what the world throws at them. It is written by Diablo Cody with music supervision, orchestrations, and arrangements by Tom Kitt. The musical is directed by Diane Paulus.
