Jagged Little Pill is an exhilarating new rock musical based around Alanis Morissette’s 1995 album by the same. It originally debuted at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, Massachusetts last year, enjoying a sold out, 10-week run that was so successful the production has quickly made the leap to premiere on Broadway in New York later this year.

Directed by Tony Award winner, Diane Paulus, the production features an original story by Academy Award-winning writer, Diablo Cody (Juno, Tully) pivoting around themes and emotions explored in Morissette's 1995 smash hit LP. Many of her biggest hits are featured, including, "You Oughta Know," "Head Over Feet," "Hand In My Pocket," and "Ironic"

"Jagged Little Pill is more than a show, it is a movement," said director, Diane Paulus. "There was a visceral energy every night in the theatre of the audience wanting to live inside our story and the music of this iconic album."

Released on June 13, 1995, the tremendous success of Alanis Morissette's album, Jagged Little Pill skyrocketed her to become the bestselling international debut artist in history; a title she still holds. Nearly 25 years after its release, Jagged Little Pill continues to be one of the Top 20 Best-Selling albums of all time.
