Jagged Little Pill

From Academy Award-winning writer Diablo Cody (Juno), comes the two-time Tony-winning Jagged Little Pill! It is 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. In December of 2021, Jagged Little Pill was thrilled to began its Austrailian tour. 

“Joyful and redemptive, rousing and real. It’s the first jukebox musical

to truly make sense

of its genre.”

-The New York Times

"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.”  

-Rolling Stone

The Neil Gaiman at the End of the Universe

A man awakens, adrift in deep space, with little memory of who he is – only to discover that he is the commander of a space mission; the rest of the crew is gone; and he is apparently a writer of some small renown named Neil Gaiman.

The Neil Gaiman at the End of the Universe is perfect for fans of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Black Mirror. It stars Neil Gaiman as… well, you know, and Jewel Staite (Firefly; Stargate Atlantis), and is written by Arvind Ethan David.  The Neil Gaiman At The End of the Universe is an Audible Original with all proceeds benefiting 501(c)3 mental health non-profit This Is My Brave.

Gray

Gray is a radical rework of the classic Oscar Wilde novel; a supernatural, revenge thriller about a beautiful, debauched and dangerous woman, Dorian Gray, and her mission of retribution.

Written by Stoker-nominated and Audible best-selling author Arvind Ethan David, Gray is told in two parts: first, as a beautiful graphic novel with an all-female artist team. Second, Gray is told as an all-star, full-cast audiodrama hosted by Speranza, an amateur, true crime sleuth investigating the crimes twenty years after they remain unsolved.

 

Like their Wildean originals, the characters in Gray cover the spectrum of diversity, and debate in sparkling witticisms the most serious issues of our time including sexual assault, gender identity and sexual orientation, and prejudice and systemic racism.

“An inventive, empowered, and thoroughly entertaining twist on a classic. Gorgeous, provocative, and damn hard to put down.”

-Diablo Cody

Mother of Frankenstein
Escape Room in a Box

In collaboration with Prodigal, Mother of Frankenstein is a tabletop puzzle game from Terry Pettigrew-Rolapp and Tommy Wallach of Hatch Escapes, creators of Lab Rat, the #1 Escape Room in Los Angeles. The project launched on Kickstarter in September, 2020, and raised $235,636. 

One part escape room, one part immersive theatre, one part board game, Mother of Frankenstein is a 5-10 hour experience for between 1 and 5 players. While challenging enough for serious gamers, it also features a rich, emotional narrative based on the life of Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein, which will appeal to all lovers of story. Great for couples and families, this game provides an entertaining and engaging way to spend those long evenings at home. Suitable for ages 13 and above. 


A mysterious box arrives at your home. Inside are five antique novels. The first is a beautiful old copy of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, while the other four turn out to be not books, but locked containers, inside of which are a collection of letters, journals, maps, and mysterious artifacts. You soon learn that all of this was left by Mary Shelley upon her death for her only child, Percy Florence Shelley, as a means of bequeathing the secret story behind her famous novel. Inspired (but not entirely beholden to) the incredible real life of Mary Shelley, Mother of Frankenstein challenges you to solve Mary’s puzzles and learn the truth behind both her life...and that of one of the most famous monsters of all time.

“Mother of Frankenstein is pretty much the definition of out-of-the-box thinking.”

-Publishers Weekly

“A unique, tittilating and spooky tabletop experience.”

-CBR

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 2022, 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.”
