Broadway's 'Jagged Little Pill' Announces New Stars for Reopening - Watch Them Perform on 'GMA'

The new stars of the Broadway musical Jagged Little Pill have been announced ahead of the show’s reopening next month!

Tony nominees Elizabeth Stanley and Celia Rose Gooding will not be featured in the reopening cast when the show returns to Broadway on October 21.

Heidi Blickenstaff and Morgan Dudley have been cast as Mary Jane Healy and Frankie Healy, respectively.

Elizabeth is currently on maternity leave and will return to the show in November while Celia has left the cast after landing the role of Uhura in the Paramount+ series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.

Returning original cast members include Kathryn Gallagher, Derek Klena, Sean Allan Krill, Lauren Patten, and Antonio Cipriano.

“I am very excited for Elizabeth having become a mother!” Alanis Morissette said in a statement. “And thrilled that she is able to return to the role of Mary Jane in a way that cares for this deeply important chapter of her personal journey – by sharing the role with Heidi, who herself is a mom. It takes a village to raise a child, and it takes a Broadway village to support a mother. This level of support is exciting, collaborative and path-clearing for moms – to know that they can remain expressed and connected with their artistic community, while embracing the priority and intimacy of motherhood.”

Watch Heidi, Derek, Sean, DeAnne Stewart, and the ensemble perform “Thank U” and “You Learn” on Good Morning America below!

Get to Know Broadway Star Derek Klena with These 10 Fun Facts! (Exclusive)

Derek Klena is one of the brightest new stars on Broadway and we recently caught up with him to learn more about him!

The 29-year-old actor is currently starring in the musical Jagged Little Pill and he has previously appeared in shows like Anastasia, Wicked, and The Bridges of Madison County.

Derek also lent his voice for the world premiere recording of the musical My Marcello.

My Marcello is a romantic comedy about death (and a lot more). Set in a small Italian village where there is a scarcity of burial plots, shrinking by the month, particularly in light of a recent circus accident on the highwire. Marcello (Santino Fontana) makes it his personal mission to keep everyone in town alive for as long as possible. Why? His beloved wife, Roseanna (Laura Osnes), is gravely ill and wishes to be buried next to her daughter. For a tiny town cemetery running low on plots, this is a dubious possibility. Enter gangsters, falling church bells, evil landowners, bodies hidden amongst the frozen peas, a passionate couple – all creating the perfect recipe to discover the true meaning of love.
