You Oughta Know: Alanis Morissette’s ‘Jagged Little Pill’ Headed to Broadway
Alanis Morissette is bringing her massive 1995 album, Jagged Little Pill, to the Broadway stage.
Today (Nov. 8) it was announced that the show, titled Jagged Little Pill, would debut in 2014. The show will include all 12 songs from the angst-driven album, including hits “You Oughta Know,” “Hand in My Pocket” and “Ironic,” along with several other tracks taken from the five other albums she’s released since then. No word on what additional songs will be used.
“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,” Morissette said in a statement. “I look forward to collaborating with [producer] Vivek [Tiwary] and Tom [Kitt] and our whole inspiring team to create something greater than the sum of our parts.”
Morissette will also reportedly compose new songs specifically for the show, which will be arranged by two-time Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winner Tom Kitt, who worked on American Idiot: The Musical, based on Green Day’s 2004 album.
As of now, no venue or official debut date has been announced for the show.
