Coming to Broadway, is Alanis Morissette’s Grammy album “Jagged Little Pill,”
That album, which Morissette created with Producer Glen Ballard, had a huge impact on culture, fans and other artists. Now, she is creating a jukebox musical with composer Tom Kitt, whose worked on Green Day’s award-winning Broadway show “American Idiot,” according to Billboard.com.
“We’re just in the beginning phases of it so I can barely share anything about it because we haven’t created it yet,” says Morissette, “but the story is going to be fictionalized and then at some point down the next 10 years I can envision myself creating a one-person show where I can really get into the subtleties and the stories, but for this particular musical it will be a fictionalized story and we’ll add songs and change lyrics.”
Morissette saw “American Idiot”, which didn’t turn Green Day’s songs into show tunes but stayed fairly true to them, and feels “they used the songs so beautifully.”
