Starlight Theatre is excited to welcome the national tour of Jagged Little Pill to our historic Kansas City theatre August 1-6. This will be the first time this show has been performed in Kansas City! 

Inspired by the seminal rock album of the same name by seven-time Grammy Award winner Alanis Morissette, this show features unforgettable lyrics and music. 

The show’s story follows a suburban mother and her two teenaged children as they navigate the impact and complexities of addiction, modern adolescence, family, forgiveness, and healing. This is a story that you will feel – and those feelings may be as complex as the story itself. This production uses strong dialogue and meaningful music to tell real and vulnerable stories. 

This show contains mature content that may not be fit for younger audiences or individuals sensitive to topics of addiction or assault. This show is recommended for individuals ages 14 and up.

A chart-topping album turned stage show 

Released on June 13, 1995, the tremendous success of Alanis Morissette’s album “Jagged Little Pill” skyrocketed her to become the bestselling international debut artist in history; a title she still holds, with the record’s sales reaching 33 million copies worldwide. 

In 2019, Atlantic Records partnered with the Broadway production for the release of its Original Broadway Cast Recording. After its release, the cast album received the 2021 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album. 

Following the success of the musical and its corresponding cast album, Grand Central Publishing released a book that followed the journey of Jagged Little Pill, featuring behind-the-scenes photos of the show and exclusive stories for Alanis Morissette herself.
