Hailed by The New York Times as "a big-hearted musical that breaks the mold," JAGGED LITTLE PILL officially opens at Broadway's Broadhurst Theatre on Thursday, December 5th following a record-breaking, sold-out world premiere at American Repertory Theater (A.R.T) last year; preview performances began last night.

"JAGGED LITTLE PILL (ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST RECORDING)" features all-new renditions of songs originally featured on Alanis Morissette's groundbreaking 1995 debut album co-written by Glenn Ballard - including such hits as "You Oughta Know," "Head Over Feet," "Hand In My Pocket," and "Ironic" - along with other selections from her extensive catalog, and two new songs - "Smiling" and "Predator" - written expressly for the musical by Morissette & Michael Farrell. The album is produced by Neal Avron & Tom Kitt and co-produced by Pete Ganbarg, Craig Rosen, Michael Parker, Vivek J. Tiwary, Arvind Ethan David, and Eva Price.
"When Eva Price called me a little over two years ago to ask if Atlantic would be interested in partnering with her, Vivek and Arvind on the cast recording of JAGGED LITTLE PILL," said Atlantic Records President of A&R, Pete Ganbarg, "I said yes before she even finished asking the question. Alanis' album is such a seminal recording that the opportunity to re-introduce these songs in a modern, dramaturgical context for a new generation is something we're thrilled to be a part of. Add Diablo Cody's compelling book, Tom Kitt's brilliant arrangements, incredible performances by our cast and band, and Neal Avron and Tom's boundary-pushing production and this album is everything we had hoped it would be. We couldn't be more excited to be sharing the cast recording of JAGGED LITTLE PILL with the world."
"When producing records, I look for music that will elicit emotion from the listener," adds Producer Neal Avron, "Alanis's iconic album, Jagged Little Pill, is absolutely fearless in that regard. I am thrilled to take this groundbreaking music, along with Tom Kitt, help turn it into the Broadway cast album."
"I remember so clearly that moment in time when the force of nature that is Alanis Morissette entered my life with her brilliant artistry," says Tom Kitt (Music Supervisor, Orchestrator & Arranger). "And now, it is a great privilege to collaborate with Alanis in realizing both this new theatrical adaptation of her work, and this cast recording. I am so grateful to Alanis and to Glen Ballard for creating this seminal album and for trusting me to play a role in bringing it to the theater where I know audiences will feel its power the way I did. Thank you to Neal Avron, Atlantic Records, and our brilliant cast and musicians who poured their musical hearts into this recording to make something we are all deeply proud of."
