It worked out for Green Day with American Idiot , so why not give Alanis Morissette the chance to take one of her albums to Broadway? 1995's Jagged Little Pill is being reworked as a show, but you may also get new Alanis music along with it.
Via Consequence of Sound:
With an original story by Diablo Cody (Juno, Tully ), the play features songs from Morissette’s catalog along with new numbers penned by her and Glen Ballard. The show premiered in the summer of 2018 at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Director Diane Paulus, best known forWaitress, will guide the production onto the New York stage, which will also mark Cody’s Broadway debut.
It seems that there is already a story written for the show too.
The story follows a family called the Healys. On the surface, they seem to be living the perfect suburban life, but when “the cracks beneath the surface begin to show, they must choose between maintaining the veneer, or defiantly facing truths about themselves and the world around them.”

I have very fond memories of staying in a dorm at college (Summer Bridge program at CSUB!) and hearing this album blare down the hall from my room. A bunch of girls wailing along with Alanis because, even six years later at that point, it was still a perfect album.
