Producers Vivek J. Tiwary, Arvind Ethan David and Eva Price have announced that Broadway veteran Heidi Blickenstaff will lead the North American Tour of the Tony and Grammy award-winning musical Jagged Little Pill in the role of Mary Jane Healy when the show premieres September 6th in Las Vegas at Reynolds Hall.
Last fall, Heidi Blickenstaff reopened Jagged Little Pill on Broadway as Mary Jane Healy, and later shared the role with her friend Elizabeth Stanley.

Heidi has appeared on Broadway in The Addams Family (Alice), The Little Mermaid (Ursula), [title of show] (Heidi), and The Full Monty. Other credits include New York City Center’s Encores!: Most Happy Fella (Cleo); Vineyard Theatre: Now. Here. This. and [title of show]; The Weston Playhouse: Next To Normal (Diana); The Kennedy Center, Signature Theatre and PBS: “First You Dream: The Music Of Kander And Ebb”; and at Ford’s Theatre Heidi starred in the musical Meet John Doe winning a Helen Hayes Award for her performance.
