EAST LANSING, Mich. — 2017 Sutton Foster Ovation Award Winner, Antonio Cipriano, is officially starring in the original Broadway cast of JAGGED LITTLE PILL. This new musical inspired by the Grammy-winning album by Alanis Morissette is set to start performances on November 3, 2019, at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City.

Cipriano will be starring in the role of Phoenix, after originating the role in the world premiere of JAGGED LITTLE PILL at American Repertory Theater last summer. The show sold out 79 performances and The Boston Globe raved it’s “urgent, wildly entertaining, and wickedly funny in all the right places.”

After winning the 2017 Sutton Foster Ovation Award for Best Actor, Cipriano professed that his dream was to “be a performer in any kind of way, because that just has to be my career.” Now bringing those dreams to life, Cipriano’s grand Broadway opening night is scheduled for Thursday, December 5, 2019.

“We are so incredibly proud of Antonio,” says Wharton Center Executive Director Mike Brand. “We know this is just the beginning of his successful career in the industry. Like all our Sutton Foster Ovation Award students, Antonio put himself out there, worked hard and now it’s paying off.”

Also starring in the Broadway cast of JAGGED LITTLE PILL is Derek Klena (ANASTASIA), Kathryn Gallagher (SPRING AWAKENING), Lauren Patten (FUN HOME) and Elizabeth Stanley (ON THE TOWN). JAGGED LITTLE PILL is directed by Tony Award® winner Diane Paulus (WAITRESS, PIPPIN) with an original story by Academy Award-winning writer Diablo Cody (JUNO, TULLY). The show features lyrics by seven-time Grammy Award winner Alanis Morissette and music by six-time Grammy winner Glen Ballard and Morissette. The creative team is completed with movement direction and choreography by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (Olivier Award winner) and musical supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Tony® and Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt (NEXT TO NORMAL, AMERICAN IDIOT).
