Alanis Morissette's 'Jagged Little Pill' to become Broadway musical
Alanis Morissette's 1995 album 'Jagged Little Pill' is set to become a Broadway musical.

The singer is currently developing the album for the stage, with a workshop version of the musical set to debut in New York next year. Variety reports that the composer Tom Kitt, who worked on the stage version of Green Day's 'American Idiot', will be working on the project with Morissette, whilst Vivek J. Tiwary will produce with Arvind Ethan David.

In a statement, Morissette said: "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... 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 will feature all 12 songs from Morissette's debut as well as tracks from other albums by the artist, in addition to numbers written specifically for the project.
