I recommend turnin’ your hit album into a Broadway musical. And, whad’ya know, it looks like seven-time Grammy Award winner Alanis Morissette is taking my advice. According to USA Today, the songstress and two-time Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt (If/Then, Next to Normal) are collaborating on a stage musical inspired by Morissette’s seminal 1995 album, Jagged Little Pill.
A workshop production of the musical, titled Jagged Little Pill (Isn’t it ironic? No, it’s not), is expected to make its debut in New York City in 2014. The tuner will include the full song list from the album, tracks from the rest of Morissette’s body of work and some new songs she will compose specifically for the stage production. Kitt is expected to provide orchestrations and arrangements for the show. Read more on the release here.
