Alanis Morissette’s "Jagged Little Pill" inspires a Broadway musical

If you’re a certain kind of person who came of age in the 1990s, and someone innocently asks you “Isn’t it ironic?” your brain can only go to one place: The music of Alanis Nadine Morissette, who’s 1995 album, “Jagged Little Pill,” became the unexpected soundtrack of a generation – a generation of young women who’d realized they didn’t really fit into the box society was trying to put them in. And that was okay.

I feel drunk but I’m sober, I’m young and I’m underpaid
I’m tired but I’m working, yeah
I care but I’m restless, I’m here but I’m really gone
I’m wrong and I’m sorry baby

What it all comes down to
Is that everything is going to be quite alright
‘Cause I’ve got one hand in my pocket

And the other one is flicking a cigarette

What it all comes down to
Is that I haven’t got it all figured out just yet

“I was just writing about my human condition, and perhaps the human condition, you know?” said Morissette. “The vulnerability, the rage, the betrayal.”

“Jagged Little Pill” won five Grammys and sold more than 33 million copies worldwide, making it one of the most successful albums of all time. And now, 25 years later, “Jagged Little Pill” has been turned into a Broadway musical.

Lauren Patten performs “You Oughta Know” in “Jagged Little Pill,” a new Broadway musical inspired by the Alanis Morissette album.
