By Creative Media TimesAlanis Morissette’s seminal 1995 album “Jagged Little Pill” is coming to Broadway in Fall of 2019, announced this week.
The musical is set to incorporate lyrics and themes from the album to tell the story, which deals with relationships, pain and empowerment as well as social issues and hardships. “Inspired by the groundbreaking album by Alanis Morissette,” it says on the promo.
The Canadian singer herself posted the announcement on her twitter: “Our new musical comes to #Broadway this fall. We want you to know everything first—sign up by Feb. 11 to get priority access to tickets and to stream an exclusive first listen of “All I Really Want”, featuring our World Premiere cast.”
Last May, the rock musical production premiered at the American Repertory Theater in Massachusetts for a ten-week run. It was directed by Diane Paulus, who won a Tony Award in 2013 for the revival of Pippin. It also has a book by Diablo Cody, who won an Academy Award for the screenplay for the 2007 coming of age teen comedy film “Juno.”
Alanis Morissette’s album remains one of the most influential of all time. Released in 1995, it became a worldwide phenomenon, selling 33 million copies worldwide and won five Grammy Awards including Album of the Year. Morissette co-wrote the album with Glen Ballard.
