NEW YORK -- The Alanis Morissette musical "Jagged Little Pill" is set to debut on Broadway this fall.
The show's producers say the hit-driven stage show begins preview performances Nov. 3 and will have its opening night Dec. 5.
It heads to the Great White Way after an acclaimed 10-week run last year at American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Mass.
"Jagged Little Pill" centres on a picture-perfect suburban family who is forced to face "harsh truths about themselves, their community, and the world around them."
"Juno" scribe Diablo Cody wrote the story while Morissette supplies lyrics and an array of hits from her groundbreaking 1995 debut of the same name, including "You Oughta Know," "Head Over Feet," "Hand In My Pocket," and "Ironic."
Pre-sale access to tickets will be available to members of the Jagged Little Pill fan club from May 6 to 8, while American Express cardholders can pick up tickets from May 8 to 16. Tickets go on sale to the public May 23 at Telecharge.com.
