Review: Jagged Little Pill the Musical has it all. Centred around a disfunctional family, every topic is on the table which can be a little confronting if you have skeletons in the closest, but presented in an uplifting performance, everyone is able to enjoy this incredible production.

Outstanding performances from an incredible cast including; Natalie Bassingthwaighte who was a real standout as Mary Jane who comes face to face with her inner demons, showing great tone and comic acting, her husband Steve (Tim Draxl) sheds light on the inner workings of the male mind, our 'good boy' Nick played by Liam Head enlightens us on the teen pressures where success equals love, and Emily Nkomo embraces the role of Frankie, a teen that pushes the boundaries in a woke world, but it's Maggie McKenna as Jo (scoring the most recognisable song) that got audiences to the feet with a fabulous rendition & performance of 'You Oughta Know' that's shows skill in the choreography. Other noteworthy performaces were Grace Miell as Bella, and Aydan  as Phoenix who both showed the right emotional detail to their signicant parts.

 

If you haven't already seen Jagged Little Pill the Musical, go, make a night of it, and enjoy this 'perfectly imperfect' story of family and struggles that we all face. Packed with familiar and power songs from Alanis Morissette, make this a memorable performance.
