Heidi Blickenstaff Joins JAGGED LITTLE PILL | Full Broadway Cast Announced
Alanis Morissette’s 15-time Tony nominated musical Jagged Little Pill will reopen on October 21, 2021 at the Broadhurst Theatre, now with Heidi Blickenstaff as Mary Jane. Tony nominee Elizabeth Stanley will be taking some time to be a new mom and will return to share the role with Blickenstaff in November.
“We couldn't think of a better person to share the role of Mary Jane Healy with Elizabeth than the extraordinarily talented virtuoso Heidi Blickenstaff, who is bringing her own unique interpretation to the role,” said producer Eva Price. “We can't wait for these two women to thrill and inspire audiences at the Broadhurst this fall."
“I am very excited for Elizabeth having become a mother!” said Alanis Morissette. “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.”
Morgan Dudley will also be joining the cast as Frankie as Celia Rose Gooding has departed for other projects. New ensemble members include Runako Campbell, Janine DiVita, Veronica Otim, Wren Rivera, and Grace Slear.
Original cast members Derek Klena, Sean Allan Krill, Kathryn Gallagher, Lauren Patten, Antonio Cipriano, and ensemble members Annelise Baker, Yeman Brown, Jane Bruce, John Cardoza, Ken Wulf Clark, Laurel Harris, Logan Hart, Zach Hess, Max Kumangai, Heather Lang, Kelsey Orem, DeAnne Stewart, and Kei Tsuruharatani are all set to return.
The creative team includes Scenic Designer Riccardo Hernandez, Costume Designer Emily Rebholz, Lighting Designer Justin Townsend, Sound Designer Jonathan Deans, and Video Designer Lucy Mackinnon; alongside Hair, Wig, and Make-up Designer J. Jared Janas.
