Jagged Little Pill

From Academy Award-winning writer Diablo Cody (Juno) comes an “urgent, wildly entertaining, and wickedly funny” (The Boston Globe) original story of suburban subversion inspired by Alanis Morissette’s Grammy-Award winning album.

Mary Jane Healy is a high-achieving homemaker who will do anything for her family, including their adopted African-American daughter Frankie, who is struggling to find her place in their lily-white community. But when the Healys’ lives begin to unravel, Mary Jane’s drive to keep her family together threatens to break them apart.

Featuring Morissette’s iconic songs including “Ironic,” “You Oughta Know,” and “Hand in My Pocket,” as well as newly written material, this “big-hearted musical that breaks the mold” (The New York Times) is directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin), with music supervision, orchestrations, and arrangements by Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt (Next to Normal) and movement direction and choreography by Olivier Award winner and frequent Beyoncé collaborator Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.

Hailed as “triumphant and moving” by Variety, JAGGED LITTLE PILL comes to Broadway after a record-breaking run at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

“Joyful and redemptive, rousing and real. It’s the first jukebox musical to truly make sense of its genre.”


Jagged Little Pill burns with passion. It’s essential medicine that must be swallowed and enjoyed so we can be cured. I want to see it again and again.”  


The Garden of Evening Mists

The Garden of Evening Mists is a historical drama film based on the Booker Prize-nominated novel by Tan Twan Eng. The movie is directed by Tom Lin from a script by BAFTA-winning screenwriter Richard Smith and produced by Prodigal’s Arvind Ethan David for HBO and Astro Shaw.  The film is currently screening at festivals across Asia, receiving one award and 9 nominations at the 56th Golden Horse Awards Ceremony 2019. 

"The plot is FASCINATING and, of course, COMPLEX...This novel uses fine art as its major theme and, in the process, BECOMES A WORK OF FINE ART ITSELF."

The Ladder

The Ladder is a completely new take on escape rooms: a 90-minute, fully replayable and choice-driven immersive narrative experience. Your group will collectively take on the role of a new employee at Nutricorp, a vitamin company with a dark secret to hide. The game tracks your 50-year career climbing the corporate ladder—starting in 1949 and ending in 1999—as you progress from the windowless mailroom in the basement to that coveted corner office. It’s How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying meets American Psycho.  

Due to open in 2020, Prodigal is producing The Ladder in partnership with Hatch Escapes. Hatch's first escape room Lab Rat has been voted #1 in LA and #8 in the world.  

 “It’s one of the BEST in the WORLD, NOT JUST THE CITY.”
