The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade enabled Broadway performers to shine on a national stage after COVID-19 shut down the Great White Way

Enter Jagged Little Pill, the Tony nominated musical based on the songs from Alanis Morissette’s 1995 hit album of the same name

When members of the cast provided a rendition of Morissette’s “You Learn,” viewers tuned in at home turned to social media to stare at other people on social media in disbelief. Some had pronounced discomfort. Others flinched when they did Heard voices other than Morissette’s that provided their famous lyrics

I love Alani’s songs, but I get the premise of Jagged Little Pill, the musical M #MacysParade pic, not Twittercom / D8Q1b3NPMy

The song from “Jagged Little Pill” was just one musical number among several recorded segments that appeared in the parade of shows such as “Mean Girls”, “Hamilton” and “Ain’t Too Proud – The Life and Times of Temptations “were presented”

Due to the pandemic, the parade abolished its usual float and balloon route in favor of glasses placed in front of the entrance to Macy’s or the home of individual Broadway shows. Also gone was the usual crowd on the sidelines

All of you I love musicals I really appreciate Canadian legend Alanis Morrissette But I don’t understand how “Jagged Little Pill: The Musical” came about. These songs were only meant for Alanis and Alanis #MacysThanksgivingParade

You apparently weren’t influenced by the production’s 15 Tony nominations – most of all shows that year – including Best Musical

“I think the Jagged Little Pill musical is proof that most things shouldn’t become musical theater,” tweeted editor Bonnie Stiernberg

“I love musicals”, tweeted Michaela Flack. “I really appreciate the Canadian legend Alanis (Morissette) But I don’t understand how “Jagged Little Pill: The Musical” came about. These songs were only meant for Alanis and Alanis ”

When the fans of the musical saw the flood of negative feedback, they came to the show’s defense

They pointed out, for example, that the song was a small part of the whole and was separate from its usual context on the show

For those who are not deterred in their appreciation of the musical, there will be a livestream performance of “Jagged Little Pill” in December 13, known as the “Broadway Reunion Concert”

The cast will come together after nearly 10 months from the stage to perform selections from the show in support of the #SaveOurStages movement in collaboration with performing arts centers and theaters across the country
