FEATURED REVIEWS FOR Jagged Little Pill

Broadway Musical ‘Jagged Little Pill’ Burns With Passion
8 / 10

Because, of course, it's Morissette's music that saves the day. After the floodgates open with 'You Oughta Know,' the star of the show, MJ (a stunning Elizabeth Stanley), takes over, writhing on her sofa in the grips of an opioid overdose, singing the Grammy-winning 'Uninvited,' with a doppelgänger dancer-demon mimicking her agony. 'Hand in My Pocket' brings a grin. 'Head Over Feet' is adorable. 'Ironic' gets big laughs because it's set amid a high-school creative-writing workshop and invokes all the criticisms that have been launched at the song's quirky lyrics: It's not ironic, y'all! And the sublime movement by Belgian choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (who also choreographed sequences in Beyoncé and Jay-Z's 'Apeshit' video) recalls the spastic, emotive motion you'd recognize from a Sia music video.

SIDE EFFECTS
6 / 10

A dose of Jagged Little Pill, the Alanis Morissette jukebox musical on Broadway about a dysfunctional American family, delivers desirable jolts to the head and heart thanks to vibrant performances and hits like 'Ironic,' 'Head Over Feet' and 'Hand in My Pocket,' songs that have been capably threaded into storylines. But this Pill also produces unwanted side effects. At the Broadhurst Theatre, home of the musical drawn from the Canadian singer-songwriter's angsty megahit 1995 album, they include but are not limited to: Prolonged itching for a focused, impactful plot; dulled senses from familiar situations and characters; and ear strain due to efforts to comprehend drowned-out lyrics. Is there a script doctor in the house?
