Jagged Little Pill, the musical: Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?


 

Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill won album of the year at the 1996 Grammys, and was the highest-selling disc of the ’90s.

Now, for whatever reason, it’s going to Broadway. Set to hit the stage in 2014, the musical will include every song on Morissette’s iconic 1995 album, as well as other songs from different periods in her career, and some new material.

“I look forward to taking the heart of Jagged Little Pill and expanding its story, fleshing it out into ever-deeper layers of emotionality, specificity, humanity, power, physicality, spirit and fabulism,” the Ottawa-born singer said in a statement.

Morissette isn’t the only rocker making the move to Broadway: She’s collaborating with Tony Award winner Tom Kitt, who also worked on Green Day’s own Broadway musical, American Idiot.
