You Oughta Know Alanis Morrissette Is Bringing “Jagged Little Pill” To Broadway


Alanis Morissette is bringing Jagged Little Pill, the 1995 Grammy-winning album that rocketed her to pop-music stratosphere, to the Great White Way.

The Canadian singer-songwriter ha revealed the musical will include all 12 songs from Pill, including “You Oughta Know,” “Hand in My Pocket,” “You Learn,” and “Ironic”—one of the most ubiquitous hits of the 1990—as well as Morrissette hits from other albums, and some original pieces written specifically for the musical.

“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,” Morrissette said in a statement.

Though a cast and director haven’t been named yet, Tony  winner Tom Kitt (Next to Normal, American Idiot) has been tapped to create original orchestrations and arrangements and American Idiot producer Vivek J. Tiwary will produce.

Morrissette’s first album released internationally, Pill is still the best-selling debut by a female artist in the U.S. and the highest-selling debut album in music history—with 33 million copies sold to date worldwide.
