Jagged Little Pill

EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE FINE, FINE, FINE…

 

Meet the Healys. A picture perfect family. 

 

Perfect Connecticut couple. Perfectly beautiful daughter and perfect Harvard-bound son. The perfect prescription for suburban bliss. 

 

But there are cracks beneath the surface. As secrets threaten to break them apart, the Healys must embrace difficult truths about themselves, and find the strength and love in each other to move forward, together. 

 

JAGGED LITTLE PILL is a once-in-a-generation musical that “takes on the good work we are always asking new musicals to do: sing about REAL things”. (The New York Times) 

 

Inspired by the themes and emotions of Alanis Morissette’s Grammy Award-winning album, and written by Academy Award winner Diablo Cody (Juno, Tully), JAGGED LITTLE PILL is an original story about love, about family, and the perfect imperfections that make us who we are. 


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.

"JAGGED LITTLE PILL FEELS URGENT. It’s also WILDLY ENTERTAINING‚ and WICKEDLY FUNNY in just the right places. We’re reminded that Morissette’s songs are A TREASURE."

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, and has been nominated for 9 awards at the 56th Golden Horse Awards Ceremony November 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 Washington Post

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.
