The one-hour livestream will take place on Tuesday, May 19 at 8:00PM ET on the Jagged Little Pill Facebook page and YouTube channel. It will feature conversations and exclusive performances from the Broadway cast of Jagged Little Pill and seven-time Grammy Award-winning songwriter and recording artist Alanis Morissette, who will co-host the livestream with SafePlace International founder Justin Hilton. The event will also include special appearances by the show’s Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody (Juno, Tully), Tony-winning director Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin), Olivier Award-winning choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (Beyonce at The Grammys; The Carters’ “Apesh*t”), and Pulitzer Prize winning orchestrator/arranger Tom Kitt (Next to Normal, American Idiot).

Beginning today, and throughout the week leading up to Tuesday’s event, fans have the opportunity to enter sweepstakes for special prizes at Jagged Little Pill’s website and even submit their own cover of an Alanis Morissette song to be featured during the livestream.  To enter the cover song contest, fans can post a video on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #JaggedFanCovers, and a clip of the winning entry will be featured during the livestream event.

Jagged Little Pill is an exhilarating new Broadway musical inspired by the themes and raw emotions laid bare in Morissette’s seminal album of the same name, which celebrates the 25th Anniversary of its release this June. Driven by an original tale of suburban subversion by Academy Award-winning writer Diablo Cody, the musical’s story follows the Healys, a seemingly perfect family who strives to hide the cracks beneath the surface when a troubling event shakes their community. Directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus, Jagged Little Pill opened on Broadway on December 5, 2019 at the Broadhurst Theatre.

Starring as the Healys in the Broadway production are Elizabeth Stanley as Mary Jane, Sean Allan Krill as Steve, Celia Rose Gooding as Frankie and Derek Klena as Nick; alongside Kathryn Gallagher as Bella, Lauren Patten as Jo, and Antonio Cipriano as Phoenix, all of whom reprise their roles from the musical’s record-breaking, sold-out world premiere at American Repertory Theater. Completing the Broadway cast are Annelise Baker, Maiya Blaney, Yeman Brown, Jane Bruce, John Cardoza, Ken Wulf Clark, Keri René Fuller, Laurel Harris, Logan Hart, Zach Hess, Max Kumangai, Heather Lang, Ezra Menas, Kelsey Orem, Nora Schell, DeAnne Stewart, Kei Tsuruharatani and Ebony Williams.

The event, which is presented by American Express, will also be available to watch starting May 20 on the refreshed American Express Experiences hub which now includes virtual sports, entertainment and music experiences for people to enjoy while they are staying home. In addition to this special livestream event, the site includes historic sporting events, inside tours, performances, and more from American Express partners.
