One of the biggest albums of the '90s alt-rock scene, Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill, is coming to the Broadway stage.
In the latest sign that Gen X culture has gone totally mainstream, Morissette announced on Friday that she would be turning her landmark 1995 LP into a Broadway musical, debuting in workshops some time in 2014. The concept is similar to other "jukebox musicals" based on hit tunes by diverse acts such as The Beatles, Billy Joel and Green Day among others. The difference? Morissette's anthemic tunes were mainly about being an angry grrrl with a lot of bad boyfriend baggage.
"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," Morissette said in a statement.
