Alanis Morissette’s Grammy-winning 1995 album, Jagged Little Pill, will be heading to Broadway in 2014. Two-time Tony Award winner Tom Kitt (Next To Normal, Green Day’s American Idiot) has signed on to provide orchestrations and arrangements and will be produced by Vivek J. Tiwary, who brought Green Day’s “American Idiot” to Broadway, and Arvind Ethan David. Morissette says in the press release, “I look forward to collaborating with Vivek and Tom and our whole inspiring team to create something greater than the sum of our parts.”
The musical production will feature all 13 tracks from the album as well as other songs from Morissette. “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 said in the release. Also, expect to hear some new tunes that she will write for the musical.
The seven-time Grammy Award winner will debut a workshop production of the show in 2014.
