Alanis Morissette's 1995 hit album Jagged Little Pill is coming to Broadway!
Tom Kitt, who brought Green Day's American Idiot to Broadway, will provide orchestrations and arrangements for the show that is now looking to launch some time in 2014. American Idiot's producer Vivek J. Tiwary has also signed on for the musical in addition to British-Malaysian producer Arvind Ethan David.
"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," Morissette, 39, said of the show. "I look forward to collaborating with Vivek and Tom and our whole inspiring team to create something greater than the sum of our parts."
Added David, "Alanis' songs have always uniquely combined narrative clarity with dramatic power-- bringing them to the Broadway stage feels like bringing them home."
Jagged Little Pill has sold over 33 million copies worldwide and produced six hit singles. To date, the album is still the best-selling debut release by a female artist in the U.S. and the highest-selling debut album worldwide in music history.
