Just because theaters are closed doesn't mean performers can't produce new content. And that's precisely what Broadway's Jagged Little Pill plans to do. With the help of American Express, the cast and crew of the hit show will livestream a new event featuring Alanis Morissette.
On May 19 at 8 p.m., the livestream will feature performances from the cast and Alanis Morissette, as well as a Q&A, which will be moderated by a host. There will also be a charitable component to the event, encouraging viewers to donate to The Actors Fund. And there will be a special surprise for a frontline worker who is also a fan of the show.
“Led by our spiritual guide Alanis Morissette, the entire Jagged Little Pill family is excited to come together to share music and our musical's messages of joy, healing, resilience and gratitude,” said the show’s producers Vivek J. Tiwary, Arvind Ethan David and Eva Price in a statement. “We give immense thanks to AMEX for giving us the opportunity and for our cast and creative team for keeping the Jagged Little Spirit thriving during this trying time.”
Starting May 19 at 8 p.m., this unique livestream will live on the refreshed American Express Experiences hub which now includes virtual sports, entertainment and music experiences for people to enjoy while they are staying home. In addition to this special livestream event, the site includes historic sporting events, inside tours, performances, and more from American Express partners.
The Jagged Little Pill event is open for anyone to tune in and will be available to stream on Jagged Little Pill's Facebook page and YouTube page. The livestream will also live on the Facebook and YouTube pages as a video that viewers can go back to.
