I saw this show in Boston and it was incredible. The original cast was amazing. Lauren Patten was a powerhouse who brought the audience to a standing ovation in the middle of the show. If the new cast is remotely as good as the old one it will be an incredible production.

5.0 star rating Breona from Seattle, Washington


I read the reviews before going to the show and was kind of worried. A lot of them said the play was disjointed and too dark. I think they missed the point and maybe had never actually listened to the album because it’s about rage, relationship conflict, and self discovery. I also have been to a fair amount of plays and I think this was the best play I have seen in a long time. The singers were incredible, the story line fluidly fit in the songs in a moving way, they had a great balance between heaviness and humor, there was a live band on stage, the choreography was amazing and helped convey a lot of the story line and raw emotions, and it brought up relevant topics that have touched many of our lives. Also if you grew up in the 90s it really takes you back. Expect to laugh, cry, and want to sing along. The one critique I will agree with is that there were some parts where it was hard to hear the words over the music.

Wow! Blew me away! I absolutely loved it! Can’t recommend it enough! I’ve never seen a play try to tackle the idea of intergenerational trauma from sex assault and do it in a way where you leave feeling hopeful that things can change. As a survivor, it was really moving for me and I just wanted to say thank you. It made me feel a sense of power and support that I can’t explain and embodied a lot of the ways alanis’s music has allowed me to feel angry, strong and seen over the years.

5.0 star rating JR from Portland, Oregon


Even with a half dozen understudies, this was a great show. Family dysfunction, sexual assault, tough topics carried out well, and even brought a sense of hope. A little coarse at times, so not sure if I'd bring young children.

5.0 star rating KCF from Chicago, Illinois


Best show I have seen in awhile! Just saw the performance in Chicago, amazing! Great vocals, very applicable storyline, great acting! Highly recommend!

3.0 star rating Jamie from Chicago, Illinois


The good: The performances were phenomenal. Both the acting and singing (particularly of the female performers were outstanding. The set designs and graphics were really good as well. The story, while a bit contrived to weave around the songs, was very interesting and kept my attention. It dealt with serious issues in a honest, humorous, respectful and sometimes painful way. The bad: overly woke and overdone agenda (people of color and LGBTQ+ people are heroes, white women are vapid and pretentious, white men are evil and/or clueless, teenagers are brilliant and profound while adults are bumbling idiots)). The choreography was poor and unnecessary. It was confusing, like it wanted to be edgy and gritty and angry, but it ended up looking extremely amateurish, like clumsy people stomping around doing somersaults for no reason (I’m sure the dancers were talented, but the choreography didn’t showcase that at all). As others mentioned, the sound was difficult as well. So loud in some parts my ears literally started ringing.

After looking forward to this play, I was terribly disappointed by depressing dysfunctional attempt at a play! Don't waste your money, go buy the Alanis album! Sorry ☹️
