Alanis Morissette’s hit 1995 album “Jagged Little Pill” is to be turned into a Broadway musical.

The seven-time Grammy Award winner will debut a workshop production of the show in 2014.

The production will include the songs from the album, as well as other famous Morissette tracks and some new songs the singer/songwriting has composed for the show.

Two-time Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt, who also helped to bring Green Day’s “American Idiot” to the stage, has signed on to provide orchestrations and arrangements.

Announcing the big theater news in a statement issued to WENN, Morissette says, “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 (sic).”
