The Jukebox Musical Phenomenon (3) | DO | 01 06 2023 | 9:45

Contemporary jukebox musical productions from the USA break with clichés and try new narrative styles. Thematic seriousness is finding its way into musicals like “Jagged Little Pill,” which premiered on New York’s Broadway in 2019. It interweaves songs by Canadian singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette with a story about a dysfunctional suburban family.

The fictional plot revolves around issues such as opioid addiction, racism, sexism, sexual identity and #MeToo. The jukebox musical “& Juliet”, which premiered in London in 2019, presents an alternative version of the world’s most famous love story and puts queer characters in the foreground.
