Alanis Morissette is the latest of a string of popular musicians, such as Green Day and The Four Seasons, to transition onto the Broadway stage over the past decade. Her landmark debut album, Jagged Little Pill, will act as the basis for a new musical that will be produced by Broadway veterans Vivek J. Tiwary and Arvind Ethan David. Tiwary also produced the Tony nominated and Grammy winning musical American Idiot in 2010.
Jagged Little Pill topped the Billboard 200 for 12 weeks upon its release in 1995 and has since sold 33 million copies worldwide. The album was also the highest selling album of the 90s and earned Morissette a Grammy for Album of the Year. All 12 tracks from Jagged Little Pill–six of which were successful singles–will be featured in the new Broadway production.
Morissette revealed in a recent press conference that she will be collaborating with Tony Award-winning composer Tom Kitt to produce new and original songs specifically for the production. Morissette also said that she looks “forward to collaborating with Vivek and Tom and our whole inspiring team to create something greater than the sum of our parts.” No announcements have been made regarding casting, but the show is set to hit the stage as a workshop production in 2014.
