"Jagged Little Pill," a musical featuring songs from Alanis Morissette's album of the same name, is set to debut in 2018.

The singer debuted the album in 1995, and now the hit project will debut as a musical at Cambridge's American Repertory in May 2018, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The musical will be directed by Diane Paulus and it will feature a book by Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody.

It will place a focus on such issues as gender identity and race.

"This team that has come together for this 'Jagged Little Pill' musical is my musical theatre dream come true," Morissette said in a statement. "The chemistry between all of us is crackling and I feel honored 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."

Cody and Paulus offered remarks about the upcoming musical as well.

"I am so excited to tell a modern story through these iconic songs. Alanis's music is full of powerful narratives that lend themselves organically to this process," Cody said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"'Jagged Little Pill' defined a generation and yet the raw, emotional honesty of Alanis' songs feels more needed now than ever," said Paulus.

This comes four years after Morissette announced plans to turn her album into a stage musical, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Songs like "Ironic," "You Oughta Know," and "Hand in My Pocket" from the famous album are just a few that will be heard in the musical.
