Alanis Morisette is riding the current wave of nineties nostalgia to Broadway. Her 1995 alt-rock album Jagged Little Pill, which helped usher angry rock chicks into mainstream radio and led to a revival of the female confessional singer-songwriter genre during the Clinton years, will be turned into a jukebox musical out next year. 

Billboard provides a few more details

Jagged Little Pill will be produced by Arvind Ethan David and Vivek J. Tiwary, the latter of which was behind the Broadway adaptation of Green Day's American Idiot. Another collaborator in the Green Day musical, Tony Award-winner Tom Kitt, will provide orchestrations and arrangements. 

All 12 tracks that originally appeared on Jagged Little Pill will appear in the production, along with selections from Morissette's other albums and new originals the singer-songwriter will produce specifically for the show. 

"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 says via press release.
