NEW YORK (AP) — The sobering musical “Jagged Little Pill,” which plumbs Alanis Morissette’s 1995 breakthrough album to tell a story of an American family spiraling out of control, earned a leading 15 Tony Award nominations Thursday, as the Broadway community took the first steps to celebrate a pandemic-shortened season that upended the theater world. The nominations were pulled from just 18 eligible plays and musicals, a fraction of the 34 shows the season before. Broadway theaters abruptly closed on March 12, knocking out all shows — including 16 that were still scheduled to open in the spring.
