Idina Menzel to Participate in Jagged Little Pill Reading

Per Playbill, Idina Menzel will be part of an Actors’ Equity 29-hour reading of the musical adaptation of Alanis Morissette’s “Jagged Little Pill.

The show, which features songs from Alanis Morissette’s Grammy-winning 1995 album and a book by Oscar winner Diablo Cody, will follow a modern, multi-generational family and explore gender identity and race relations. It is set to premiere at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts in May 2018. Idina is not expected to appear in the American Repertory Theater premiere of the musical, as she is already scheduled to star in “Skintight”.

Playbill suggested a similar scenario, where Matthew Morrison led a workshop of “Finding Neverland”, Jeremy Jordan took over in Cambridge while Matthew filmed “Glee”, and Matthew starred in the Broadway production. We’ll see what happens!
