The Alanis Morissette musical Jagged Little Pill is set to debut on Broadway this fall.

The show's producers say the hit-driven stage show begins preview performances Nov. 3 and will have its opening night Dec. 5.

It heads to the Great White Way after an acclaimed 10-week run last year at American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Mass.

Jagged Little Pill centres on a picture-perfect suburban family who is forced to face "harsh truths about themselves, their community, and the world around them."

Juno screenwriter Diablo Cody wrote the story while Morissette supplies lyrics and an array of hits from her groundbreaking 1995 debut of the same name, including You Oughta KnowHead Over FeetHand In My Pocket, and Ironic.

Tickets go on sale to the public on May 23.
