Broadway's 'Jagged Little Pill' Announces Abrupt Closing Notice Due to COVID-19

The Tony-winning Broadway musical Jagged Little Pill has officially closed.

The musical went dark after the performance on Friday night (December 17) due to cases of COVID-19 detected backstage. Originally, the musical was just supposed to be suspended through December 21, but the producers have announced that the show will not return to Broadway.

“The drastic turn of events this week with the rapid spread of the Omicron variant has, once again, changed everything. We are dismayed by what appears to be another substantial public health crisis, and – due to the detection of multiple positive Covid-19 cases within the company – need to prioritize the health and safety of the cast, crew, and entire team working on Jagged Little Pill,” the producers said.

The statement continued, “In light of the extreme uncertainty ahead of us this winter, and forced to choose between continuing performances and protecting our company, we’ve made the difficult decision to close our doors.”

Jagged Little Pill featured the music of Alanis Morissette and an original story by Oscar winner Diablo Cody. The musical starred Tony winner Lauren Patten along with Kathryn Gallagher, Derek Klena, Sean Allan Krill, Morgan Dudley, and Elizabeth Stanley and Heidi Blickenstaff in the shared lead role.
