“Jagged Little Pill” wraps joy, heartache, strength, wisdom and catharsis into a single Broadway show. The musical, which features an award-winning score, is based on Alanis Morissette’s album of the same title. The audience will vault “to its collective feet,” says The Guardian, while rooting for a perfectly imperfect American family. “Jagged Little Pill” reminds us what it’s like to feel truly human. The show is recommended for age 14 and up and contains strong language, adult themes, moments of sexual violence and drug use. “To Kill A Mockingbird” has been hailed as the “most successful play in Broadway history” by “60 Minutes.” Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book earned 5 stars from Rolling Stone, as well as praise from other media outlets. The story follows the trial of Tom Robinson, a Black man who is wrongfully accused of a crime, and the life of his defense attorney, Atticus Finch, and Finch’s children in Alabama during the 1930s. The show contains racially explicit language and costuming, references of sexual abuse and gunfire audio. It is recommended for age 12 and up. 

Where: Bass Performance Hall, 525 Commerce St.
When: “Jagged Little Pill” — Sept. 15-17; “To Kill a Mockingbird” — Sept. 26-Oct. 1
