NEW YORK (AP) - If Alanis Morissette gets her wish, Broadway will swallow a jagged little pill.
The singer-songwriter said Friday she hopes to adapt her 1995 breakthrough album "Jagged Little Pill" for the stage. Though no story is yet written, a workshop is planned for next year.
Broadway veteran Tom Kitt , who adapted Green Day's "American Idiot" as well as the original, Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical "Next to Normal," will provide orchestrations and arrangements.
The show, right now called "Jagged Little Pill," will include the albums hits, including "You Oughta Know," ''Ironic," ''You Learn" and "Head Over Feet."
She would join a glut of pop stars exploring the stage, including Sheryl Crow, John Mellencamp, Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, Edie Brickell, David Byrne, Fatboy Slim, Burt Bacharach and Elvis Costello.
