Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill to be adapted into Broadway musical


If Green Day can do it, so too can Alanis Morissette. According to Playbill, Morissette’s 1995 smash Jagged Little Pill — which took home the Grammy for Album of the Year and has sold 33 million copies to date — is being adapted into a Broadway production.

Vivek J. Tiwary, who previously produced Green Day’s American Idiot musical, will helm the project alongside Arvind Ethan David. Tom Kitt, who also worked on the American Idiot musical, will write orchestrations and new arrangements.

For her part, Morissette will contribute new music specifically written for the production. All of the songs appearing on Jagged Little Pill – yes, that means “Ironic”, “You Oughta Know”, “Hand in My Pocket”, and “You Learn” — as well as other songs from her back catalog, will also be featured.

A release date is still forthcoming. Below, revisit the videos for “Ironic” and “You Oughta Know”.
