* When the musical ''Jagged Little Pill'' originally played at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the character Jo was clearly nonbinary. Their gender identity was important to the plot, and Jo being nonbinary had been confirmed in social media posts by Jo's actor (Lauren Patten, a cis woman). However, when ''Jagged Little Pill'' came to Broadway, Jo was rewritten to be a cis woman, and all mentions of [[gender identity]] as a theme of the musical were removed from publicity materials. Patten deleted her prior social media posts, and even stated falsely in an interview "Jo never was written as anything other than cis." As an additional note, Patten's understudy [[Ezra Menas]] is nonbinary and played Jo for one night on Broadway.<ref name="JLP">{{Cite web |title=One Step Forward, Two Steps Back: Broadway's Jagged Little Journey Toward Nonbinary Inclusion |last=Lewis |first=Christian |work=The Brooklyn Rail |date=April 2021 |access-date=12 April 2021 |url= https://brooklynrail.org/2021/04/theater/One-Step-Forward-Two-Steps-Back-Broadways-Jagged-Little-Journey-Toward-Nonbinary-Inclusion}}</ref>
