Jagged Little Pill, the Grammy and Tony Award winning Broadway musical, inspired by Alanis Morissette’s ground-breaking album of the same name is set to return to the Theatre Royal Sydney on July 9.
The production’s premiere season of only two and half weeks opened the newly refurbished Theatre Royal Sydney in December 2021 to sold out audiences, standing ovations and outstanding reviews before continuing a smash hit run at Melbourne’s Comedy Theatre.
Natalie Bassingthwaighte and her fellow cast members will reprise their roles during the return season. However, this time around they will also be joined by Georgina Hopson, who recently had a starring role in in the recent production Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour’s Phantom Of The Opera, as she undertakes the role of Mary Jane Healy at selected performances.
“I am thrilled for us to return to Theatre Royal Sydney with this show after our short premiere season last year. Jagged Little Pill is such a special show and tells a story that needs to be told for so many reasons. I hope the story of the Healys inspires people within their own lives to find peace and ultimately joy in every day. I will be juggling working in Sydney with my family time back home so I am beyond excited to welcome Georgina back to the cast playing MJ when I will be at home being mum. She is truly phenomenal and I’m proud to share MJ with her’, said Bassingthwaighte.
