Alanis Morissette’s 1995 album Jagged Little Pill is being turned into a musical, reports say.

News sources say that the Canadian rocker is working with a team that has both Grammys and Tonys under their belts. The musical is set to hit the stage in May of next year.

“This team that has come together for this Jagged Little Pill musical is my musical theatre dream come true,” Morissette said in a statement (CBC News). “The chemistry between all of us is crackling and I feel honoured to be diving into these songs again, surrounded by all of this searing talent. Diablo and Diane are already taking these deeply personal songs that are part of my soul’s marrow to a whole other level of hope, freedom and complexity.”

Jagged Little Pill was Morissette’s third studio album and it was released on June 13, 1995. It won the Grammy that year for Album of the Year – she was the youngest musician to receive the accolade. It also won Single of the Year for “You Oughta Know,” Songwriter of the Year, Best Rock Album and Female Vocalist of the Year.
