Alanis Morissette‘s landmark 1995 album “Jagged Little Pill” is heading to Broadway, the show announced this week.

A musical featuring songs from the Grammy-winning album, as well as new songs that were written specifically for the project, will arrive in New York this fall.

Also called “Jagged Little Pill,” the show is based on an original story by Oscar-winner Diablo Cody, who wrote the movie “Juno.”

The musical focuses on The Healys, a suburban family who must decide whether to maintain their seemingly perfect-picture life or “face truths about themselves and the world around them,” according to an official press release.

It features such songs as “You Oughta Know,” “Head Over Feet,” “Ironic” and “Hand in My Pocket.”

In a statement, Morissette, 44, says the musical “has been nothing short of a revelation, a balm and an arrival for me.”

“It is a culmination of so much of what my life’s work has been oriented toward,” she added.

The show had its world premiere last year in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and ran for 79 sold-out performances at the American Repertory Theater, where it earned rave reviews.

The Boston Globe called it “wildly entertaining and wickedly funny,” adding, “we’re reminded that Morissette’s songs are a treasure.”
