“After about two months of callbacks, I received a call from my agents while working behind the front desk at SoulCycle letting me know that I booked the part.”

“I’m so thrilled to see Broadway audiences experience this iconic score in a new yet familiar way.”

“After the out of town tryout, we were all waiting to hear what would happen next. I got the call that I would be doing the lab and future Broadway production while I was at the gym, which is not a place I generally spend a great deal of time! I got maybe five minutes of working out in before the call came and spent the rest of the time pacing the cardio room crying and thanking my agent, calling my mom and sister, and trying not to explode with joy.”

“I feel like Jagged Little Pill has taught me so much already and I’m excited to keep growing with it. In addition to teaching me so much as a professional actor in a super legit setting for one of the first times, the content as well as the company have taught me so much about forgiveness, anger, privilege, acceptance. It forced me to face and consider so many things happening in the world that I hadn’t given enough thought to in the past. Also, as a singer-songwriter myself, being immersed in Alanis’s music has had a huge impact on my writing. I’m excited for that to continue to push my music to be more honest and raw in the way hers is. And I’m looking forward to being able to start a savings account before 30!”

“After our run in Cambridge with A.R.T., we had a pretty good understanding that the show would be moving forward and that it would be happening fairly quickly, but I couldn’t allow myself to feel too certain of my involvement in its future in order to protect myself from a potential blow. I cared and believed so deeply in the show. I had to learn to release and cherish my experience in Boston for what it was after closing in July. I got the call from my agents about a month-and-a-half-to-two months later that I was being offered the Broadway production. I was on a tour of the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery with my boyfriend and his parents, but we cut the tour short, let the ghosts rest, and went out to celebrate. I got to share that day with great people.”

“I get to watch and work with an incredible group of minds and talents. I’m excited to be a part of that, to be in that space every day, and I am excited to share what we’ve been working on.”

“I am an Alanis super-fan. Five years ago, I did a one-man concert of the full Jagged Little Pill album in San Francisco. Needless to say, this show was a high priority on my internal radar. I remember going in to audition about five or six times for the show. At the final callback, I sang through my song, read my sides, and got a “thank you” without any redirection. I left dejected, thinking, “Aw, man. I totally blew it!” The next day I got the call from my agent that I booked it.”

“As it did for countless people, the Jagged Little Pill album resonated deep within my soul. It gave voice to the truth of so many complicated emotions and contradictions inside of me. It helped me begin to accept my own perfect imperfection and start to heal from some of my personal traumas. I am honored to be a part of sharing that beautiful message with audiences.”

“Thankfully, I've been a part of Jagged Little Pill from the first lab in 2017. From there, we had a run in Cambridge and then another lab last December. I've continued with each new installment. Cast members are not always promised to continue on in each new production, but I was humbly asked to be a part of the Broadway production.”

“I'm thrilled about this show in particular because it feels extremely relevant to the social and political climate right now. I'm excited to share that with the audiences, and I'm thrilled about the opportunities that will bring for us to join with different organizations to raise awareness about the issues our show deals with. As a non-binary trans person, I'm ecstatic for other trans folks to see themselves on stage. I want trans folks to know they have a place in commercial musical theater.”

“The road to Broadway has been an interesting journey. I first found out I booked the show in February 2018 for the A.R.T production. After we closed in July of that year, the future was up in the air, even though we all were pretty hopeful the show would be moving on. In September 2018, I received my official “Broadway” call and I was on the street in SoHo doing all the things: crying, screaming, calling everyone I knew and telling everyone on the street who would listen. Since then, we’ve had another Developmental Lab, and officially received notice in May that we’d be opening this fall in the Broadhurst! It’s finally here!”

“I’m just excited to share this story with the world. Jagged Little Pill is so relevant and needed right now in our community and we have the most talented storytellers onstage giving their all every night. I’m beyond grateful to work with this cast and creative team who inspire and challenge me every day in the process. And I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’m absolutely thrilled to be employed. We have to celebrate the big and little wins all the same.”
