Alanis Morisette fans — You Oughta Know this great news
Melbourne’s theatre scene is about to get even better. There’s so much to look forward to, with iconic musicals like Phantom of the Opera, Hamilton and Moulin Rouge set to take the stage by storm. Now, Jagged Little Pill — the 15-time Tony Award nominated Broadway musical — has thrown their hat in the ring and is coming to Melbourne for an exclusive season in January 2022.
Jagged Little Pill musical
Named after Alanis Morissette’s Grammy-winning album, Jagged Little Pill is a dynamic musical which touches on what it means to be living in America in the 21st century. It follows a Connecticut family who seem to have everything together, but are secretly falling apart.
Morissette stans can look forward to the legend’s many memorable soundtracks on stage right from ‘You Oughta Know,’ to ‘Head Over Feet,’ and ‘Hand In My Pocket’. And it’s not just another jukebox singalong show, the production has moved fans around the world to tears and laughter along with a heady rush of nostalgia.
The musical will feature music by Morissette and six-time Grammy Award winner Glen Ballard, an original story written by Oscar Award winner Diablo Cody (Juno, Tully). The production is Directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin) with Natalie Bassingthwaighte starring.
