Alanis Morissette and the producers of the Broadway musical Jagged Little Pill have announced a livestream benefit for COVID-19 relief, sponsored by American Express.
You Live, You Learn: A Night with Alanis Morissette and Jagged Little Pill will take place Tuesday, May 19th from 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET, via the Jagged Little Pill Facebook and YouTube channels, and all proceeds from the event will go toward the Actors Fund, providing emergency relief to members of the professional theater community.
The livestream will feature conversations and performances by the cast of Jagged Little Pill, based on Morissette’s classic album of the same name.
