Rousuck's Review: "Jagged Little Pill" at the Hippodrome Theatre
It's time for another visit with Midday theater critic, J. Wynn Rousuck, who joins Tom each week with her reviews of Maryland's regional stage. Today, she tells us about the North American touring company production ofJagged Little Pill, now on stage at Baltimore's Hippodrome Theatre.
Based on singer Alanis Morissette's hit 1995 album of the same name, this new Tony and Grammy Award-winning Broadway musical tells a more complex story of
"a perfectly imperfect American family," wrapped in renditions of songs from the potent, platinum-selling album.
With lyrics credited to Alanis Morissette, music & lyrics credited to Morissette and Glen Ballard, and book by Diablo Cody, the high-energy musical is directed by Diane Paulus, with music supervision by Tom Kitt.
