Jagged Little Pill Musical + Dinner @ Veranda Bar 18+

Inspired by…

Alanis Morissette’s Grammy Award®-winning masterpiece, Jagged Little Pill is “immaculate – charged, confrontational, and uncompromising” (Daily Beast). This electrifying musical brings to the stage the joyful and redemptive story of the Healys.

Jagged Little Pill tells the story of the Healys, the perfectly imperfect family. To the outside world they are the suburban ideal – a PTA mum who is always cheering on her kids, a busy lawyer dad providing the best for his family, a high achieving son who’s just made valedictorian, and the artistic adopted daughter fighting for change in small town Connecticut. But nothing is as it seems.
