It’s gone 10x platinum and sold 33,000,000 copies worldwide…and now, Alanis Morisette’s 1995 album Jagged Little Pill is being made into a Broadway musical. A workshop production of the play will commence in 2014.
The show will contain all the songs from Alanis’ best-selling album, as well as hits from some of her others, and even some new, original songs. “I look forward to taking the heart of Jagged Little Pill and expanding its story, fleshing it out into even deeper layers of emotionality, specificity, humanity, power, physicality spirit and fabulism,” the singer said in a statement. “I look forward to collaborating with Vivek [Tiwary] and Tom [Kitt] and our whole inspiring team to create something greater than the sum of our total parts.”
Jagged Little Pill produced six hit singles, including some of Alanis’ biggest songs like “You Oughta Know” and “Ironic.” It is currently the best-selling debut release by a female artist in the United States and highest-selling debut album worldwide.
