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.”

-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

Mother of Frankenstein
Escape Room in a Box

In collaboration with Prodigal, Mother of Frankenstein is a tabletop puzzle game from Terry Rolapp and Tommy Wallach of Hatch Escapes, creators of Lab Rat, the #1 Escape Room in Los Angeles. Look for this project to launch on Kickstarter in September, 2020.

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.

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.”

Gray

A contemporary rework of the classic Oscar Wilde novel, Gray is a supernatural revenge thriller about an alluring but violent woman, Dorian Gray, who seeks vengeance on a cabal of powerful men who wronged her years ago and of the straight-laced Detective with a past of his own, who is tasked with stopping her.

Written by Arvind Ethan David, Gray is a graphic novel that is being published by Ted Adam's Clover Press, for release on Comixology and Kickstarter in Fall of 2020. 

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