You oughta know … that “Jagged Little Pill” is headed to Broadway.
The musical, inspired by Alanis Morissette’s iconic ’90s angst album, will move to the Great White Way this fall, the production company announced Monday.
Morissette wrote the music alongside Glen Ballard, while Diablo Cody (“Juno,” “One Mississippi”) wrote the book and Diane Paulus (“Waitress,” “Pippin”) will direct.
Tom Kitt, who won a Pulitzer Prize for “Next to Normal,” is in charge of music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements, while Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, best known for choreographing Beyoncé’s 2017 Grammys performance, leads movement direction.
“This process, and what this process has yielded artistically and collaboratively, has been nothing short of a revelation, a balm and an arrival for me,” Morissette said in a statement.
“It is a culmination of so much of what my life’s work has been oriented toward. To work with Diablo Cody, whose heart is as open as her mind is bright and brave, has taken this record — which has meant so much to me — to a whole other level of depth, meaning and natural activism. Touching on topics that keep me up at night for how deeply I care about them, Diablo’s at once fierce, sensitive and hilarious voice — and her willingness to stay and deepen the course through this journey of creation has been one of the greatest gifts of my life.”
“Jagged Little Pill” is coming off a sold-out 10-week run at the American Repertory Theater in Boston last summer.
Dates, theater and casting have not yet been announced.
