The catalog of Alanis Morissette is heading to Broadway.

The new musical Jagged Little Pill, which premiered at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts last year, will open on Broadway in the fall. No word yet on a theatre or dates.

The musical, helmed by Tony-winning ART Artistic Director Diane Paulus, weaves the songs of Morissette and Glen Ballard's Grammy-winning 1995 album (plus new material) with a book by Oscar winner Diablo Cody (Juno) to tell the story of a multi-generation, multiracial suburban family grappling with a series of distressing events.

Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui choreographed the world premiere engagement, featuring orchestrations and arrangements by music supervisor Tom Kitt. The production also featured sets by Riccardo Hernandez, costumes by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Justin Townsend, sound design by Jonathan Deans, and video design by Finn Ross.

The cast of the American Repertory Theater production was led by Elizabeth Stanley, Sean Allan Krill, Celia Gooding, Derek Klena, and Lauren Patten. Casting for the Broadway engagement will be confirmed at a later date.

Producing the Broadway engagment are Vivek J. Tiwary, Arvind Ethan David, and Eva Price.
