Broadway’s Jagged Little Pill is closing its doors permanently after just two years.
The play, based on Alanis Morissette‘s award-winning album of the same name, is the latest causality to a Covid-19 impacted industry.
It was originally postponed on December 18 following a number of Omicron cases, but now they have revealed that it will not be returning.
Jagged Little Pill took to Instagram to share the news.
“We are dismayed by what appears to be another substantial public health crisis, and – due to the detection of multiple positive Covid-19 cases within the company – need to prioritise the health and safety of the cast, crew and entire team working on Jagged Little Pill.
“In light of the extreme uncertainty ahead of us this winter, and forced to choose between continuing performances and protecting our company, we’ve made the difficult decision to close our doors.”
They added: “There is nothing in the world like live theater. There is no community in the world like this Broadway family of artists and audiences. We will make it through this, together.”
Friday December 17 was the final ever performance of the show.
