Cincinnati, OH (June 23, 2022) – Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Cincinnati presented by TriHealth announces the addition of Tony and Grammy Award-winning musical, JAGGED LITTLE PILL to the 22/23 season. The musical, featuring music from iconic singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette’s 90s album of the same name, will play the Aronoff Center for one week only from March 28 – April 2, 2023.

The engagement of BEAUTIFUL: THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL will no longer visit Cincinnati in the upcoming 22/23 season.

JAGGED LITTLE PILL
March 28 – April 2, 2023

SOME SHOWS YOU SEE. THIS SHOW YOU FEEL.
Joy, love, heartache, strength, wisdom, catharsis, LIFE—everything we’ve been waiting to see in a Broadway show—is here in the exhilarating, fearless new musical based on Alanis Morissette’s world-changing music.

Directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin, upcoming 1776) with a Tony-winning book by Diablo Cody (Juno) and Grammy-winning score, this electrifying production about a perfectly imperfect American family “vaults the audience to its collective feet” (The Guardian). “Redemptive, rousing and real, JAGGED LITTLE PILL stands alongside the original musicals that have sustained the best hopes of Broadway.” (The New York Times)

You live, you learn, you remember what it’s like to feel truly human… at JAGGED LITTLE PILL.

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD Quick Review

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD presented by Broadway in Cincinnati through June 12. I attended the opening night performance.

I cannot say enough good things about this production. Aaron Sorkin’s excellent adaption breathes new life and energy into this American classic. The amazing cast is led by pitch perfect Richard Thomas as Atticus Finch (sorry you will always be John Boy to me) and features Mary Badham (Scout from the motion picture that starred Gregory Peck). In this version, Jem and Dill serve as co-narrators to Scout. Coming in at three hours with intermission, the show never lost momentum and kept me engaged from start to finish. I have never seen an Aronoff audience react so strongly and positively to a play. If you are on the fence about seeing this one, I highly encourage you to go.

My rating: 5 out of 5.
