Alanis Morissette will soon join a long line of popular performers taking their talents to Broadway. Variety reports that the singer-songwriter is working on adapting her classic 1995 album “Jagged Little Pill” for the stage.
Morissette is currently working with Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Tom Kitt, who did arrangements and orchestration for Green Day’s own 2010 Broadway outing American Idiot. The show will feature some of the singer’s iconic hits, including “Ironic” and “You Outta Know,” along with other songs from throughout her career. Each song will be fleshed out to jibe with the stage show’s overarching storyline.
Jagged Little Pill will only be one of a handful of productions crafted by rock talent in recent years. The Tony Award-winning Kinky Boots features music and lyrics by Cyndi Lauper, while the slightly more middling Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark famously features the talents of Bono and The Edge of U2. There’s currently no word as to whether or not Dave Coulier will make an appearance onstage.
