Jagged Little Pill, of course, was a breakthrough moment in music as well as Morissette’s key release early in her career, the one that launched her to international fame and became an iconic snapshot of the 1990s and an empowering release that has directly influenced legions of singer/songwriters in its wake.
All of this exciting news comes as the Broadway adaptation of Jagged Little Pill prepares to launch this week. Via a news release:
JAGGED LITTLE PILL will be making its debut on Broadway this Thursday, December 5th at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City. Featuring lyrics by Alanis and music by Alanis and six-time Grammy winner Glen Ballard, JAGGED LITTLE PILL is directed by Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin) and features an original story by Academy Award-winning writer Diablo Cody (Juno, Tully). JAGGED LITTLE PILL is a breathtaking new musical inspired by the themes and emotions revealed in Alanis Morissette’s album of the same name. Variety notes “[a]lways engaging, often moving and even rousing, the show boasts dramatic interest and integrity on its own theatrical terms.” For tickets, please visit telecharge.com.
