Alanis Morissette’s ‘Jagged Little Pill’ Musical Is Heading to Broadway


The new musical Jagged Little Pill, which encompasses a catalog of Alanis Morissette’s music in addition to authentic songs, will debut this fall on Broadway.

The musical was impressed by Morissette’s Grammy-winning 1995 album of the identical title and options an authentic story by Academy Award-winning author Diablo Cody (Juno, Tully). Newly written songs for the stage may even be part of the manufacturing. Tony winner Diane Paulus, who is understood for her work on Waitress and Pippin, will direct.

The determination to transition the musical to Broadway comes after its world premiere at Boston's American Repertory Theater final summer season. The manufacturing of Jagged Little Pill ran for 79 sold-out performances, from May 5 to July 15. The 10-week engagement marked the longest-running and highest-grossing manufacturing within the theater’s historical past.

Inspired by the themes and feelings from Morissette's album, the musical covers issues akin to ache, therapeutic and empowerment by the story of the "seemingly good" Healy household. "This course of, and what this course of has yielded artistically and collaboratively, has been nothing wanting a revelation, a balm and an arrival for me,” Morissette stated in a press release. “It is a fruits of a lot of what my life’s work has been oriented towards.  To work with Diablo Cody, whose coronary heart is as open as her thoughts is vibrant and courageous, has taken this document -- which has meant a lot to me -- to a complete different stage of depth, which means and pure activism. Touching on matters that hold me up at night time for a way deeply I care about them, Diablo’s directly fierce, delicate and hilarious voice -- and her willingness to remain and deepen the course by this journey of creation has been one of many best items of my life."

Dates, theater and casting for the Broadway manufacturing can be introduced on a later date.
