Alanis Morissette’s 1995 debut album Jagged Little Pill is one of the 20 best-selling albums of all time, with over 33 million copies sold worldwide. The album was nominated for nine Grammy Awards, winning five of them, including Album of the Year.
In 2017, it was announced that screenwriter Diablo Cody wrote a musical based on the album. Last year, the musical made its debut with a sold out 10-week run at a theatre in Massachusets. This year, it will be on Broadway. It is set to open for previews in November at New York’s Broadhurst Theatre.
The musical inspired by Alanis Morissette’s 1995 Grammy Award-winning album, Jagged Little Pill, is heading to Broadway’s Broadhurst Theatre this November.
The musical is inspired by themes and emotions of the album, and according to the New York Times it is “passionate, dramatically compelling and thrilling.” Jagged Little Pill is directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus and choreographed by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, with musical supervision by Tom Kitt.
The musical deals with issues such as drug addiction, gender identity, and sexual assault. “Picture a pageant of liberalism, with your favourite ’90s songs as the soundtrack.”
