    This sounds like a good idea on paper but we'll have to judge it when it's fully executed!

    Jagged Little Pill, Alanis Morissette's breakthrough album, is headed to Broadway. Angst will find a home on the Great White Way.

    All the songs on the album -- "Ironic," "You Oughta Know," "Hand in My Pocket" and more-- along with some other songs by the Canadian singer, as well as new music that she will pen specifically for the play, will be featured in the production.

    "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," Morissette said. Yes, fabulism. She is speaking of the album's magic.

    A workshop production of the show will kick off in New York in 2014.

    One of the dudes behind Green Day's mega successful, Tony-winning American Idiot musical is involved, which spells good things for this production.

    What is your fave Jagged song? Would you want to see the album transformed as a musical?
