Indie-rock queen Alanis Morissette opens up about how her seminal 1995 album “Jagged Little Pill” became a sensational Broadway musical. BY DAVID COTE

Now that seminal album is on Broadway at the Broadhurst Theatre and poised to be the hit of the season. Directed by Diane Paulus (“Waitress”), with a book by savvy screenwriter Diablo Cody (“Juno”), the stage version of “Jagged Little

IN NEW YORK | NOVEMBER-DECEMBER 2019 | INNEWYORK.COM

Pill” is decidedly not a jukebox musical. Instead, its songs (and a couple from other releases) have been woven into an original story about a suburban family beset by depression and dysfunction. An adopted African American daughter feels alienated in her white environment. A stressed-out mother turns to prescription drugs. A father is hooked on Internet porn. Through Morissette’s defiant, hard-rocking anthems, these ordinary people express their longing for freedom and healing. IN New York caught Morissette on the phone from San Francisco to talk about her Broadway debut. I went back and listened to “Jagged Little Pill,” and kept thinking, “This rage and eloquent anger is lacking in today’s rock.” Would you agree? To me, there are different archetypes of songwriting. Some people write to perform and entertain. We have a plethora of that. And some are philosophers, with an existential imperative to write those kinds of philosophical songs. For me, I love linguistic wordsmith-isms, and malapropisms. I love philosophy, psychology, the human condition. I love to sing my guts out. So, I happen to have that combination of things, and I love to serve, so this activist fire imbues

“WHEN I LISTEN to songs that are too perfect, I feel uncomfortable,” says Alanis Morissette. “I love imperfection so much.” Although the multiplatinum recording star has been discussing the ubiquity of Auto-Tune and its ilk in pop music, she might be talking about the beauty of human imperfection. Morissette has built a career on portraying brokenness in myriad forms: sexual obsession, body dysmorphia, or the toll that sexism takes on a woman’s psyche. Remember: The title of her best-known album, 1995’s “Jagged Little Pill,” conjures up the image that medicine may slash our throats as it goes down.


everything that I do. But I still appreciate music that is there to entertain, because if every song in the world was an intense expression of activism, it might get a little much. How much Broadway or theater was in your background growing up in Canada? I used to do a theater a lot as a kid; it was the one environment where I felt regulated because it’s such a communal experience. Being a solo artist is fantastic, but there is an isolation to it. Whereas when I did theater as a kid, it was so communal, such a built-in village with a bunch of “fellow unusuals.” In some ways, all roads have led back to theater and the deep collaborative joy it begets. Because as much as I love writing alone, there’s nothing like being in a room with 35 people going forward towards the same intention. Have you been to many Broadway shows? Everything from “Spring Awakening” to “Spamalot.” I watched the whole range. “South Park,” “Jane Eyre.” I love every genre.

PHOTO: THE COMPANY OF “JAGGED LITTLE PILL,” ©NATHAN JOHNSON

When the producers approached you to make a musical out of “Jagged Little Pill,” you told them you didn’t want a biographical show. Why was that? It’s not unlike my relationship with writing my quote-unquote memoir right now. I wasn’t really up for telling the whole story because, first of all, even if someone writes a book that’s the length of “War and Peace,” they’re never going to be able to really capture a lifetime. I didn’t want it to be a jukebox musical either. I personally wouldn’t show up to see that. I wanted it to be a musical that I would be dying to see myself. How was it working with Diablo Cody? When the producers mentioned Diablo, and we met in front of a whiteboard in Malibu years ago, brainstorming and throwing ideas around, I thought, “Wow. This is one plus one equals fifty over here,” and I got really excited because Diablo has the ability to write from a broken heart combined with acerbic, hilarious comedy. She’s got those sensibilities down. It was so beautiful and fortuitous that [she] heard the characters, as she told me. She heard each character through each one of the narratives of my songs. I thought that would be daunting, but she found it to be quite inspiring and it seemed effortless for her—although I know she’s working her ass off. But the characters were born through the lyrics of my songs, and so in that sense, they seem inextricably linked, the story and the lyrics, they really feed each other.

The hit song “You Oughta Know” plays out a little different in the musical. Back in 1995, it was a breakup song from you to a man. But now it’s from one teenager—Jo—to another young woman, Frankie. Can you talk about that? When I moved from Canada to America and wrote “You Oughta Know,” my survival strategy was to tend and befriend, to play nice, and underneath that was this bubbling sense of devastation and rage, and songwriting enabled me to do that. So, the character onstage, Jo, she rolls with it. She plays it cool. And then at this point where she’s reached her limit, she loses it. And her devastation and pain come out in this song, because the relationship she’s in she thought was going one direction, and it wasn’t. It’s a similar devastation/rage. They’re usually bedfellows. And the actress who plays Jo, Lauren Patten, blends the devastation and the rage so beautifully. Other musicians have stepped into their own shows on Broadway: Billie Joe Armstrong in “American Idiot” and Sara Bareilles in “Waitress.” Would you ever join the cast? If I were, it would probably be in the role of the therapist. How could there not be a therapist in the show? It’s me. But does that character sing? She sings her ass off the whole musical in the chorus, but she doesn’t have her own song. We would make her sing. You’re based in San Francisco, but when in New York, what do you like to do? Joe’s Pizza is always the place to go, whether it’s two in the morning or otherwise. I eat my way through the city and find the new places. I’m a highly sensitive person through and through, so sensual activities, perfumes, food, walks in nature, which basically is Central Park. I used to live there very briefly, and I would roller blade by the Hudson, and do people watching, which is basically my favorite thing to do. I lived in New York for about a year, but I was really lonely, so I moved back to the West Coast.

The company of “Jagged Little Pill” on Broadway

For those familiar with the album, what has music supervisor Tom Kitt done with your sound? If there were about 11 colors on my record, Tom added 15 more. He also tied them together in ways that I could never do. He surprised me at many turns, and he rendered them really cohesive. At the tail end of the musical, without giving anything away, he blends a few songs. It’s not exactly a medley. He just blends them together seamlessly in a way that requires a kind of ear that I don’t have, and that I bow down to. IN NEW YORK | DECEMBER 2019-JANUARY 2020 | INNEWYORK.COM

ONE OF THE FIRST things you see as you enter the Museum of Modern Art’s newly expanded home are the words Hello. Again. writ large in black near the airport-style ticket counter. Not a greeting exactly, though you could take it that way, the coolly measured welcome is an artwork from 2013 by Haim Steinbach, who collects and exhibits found objects, including statements.

MoMA! A great museum reinvents itself—again. BY TERRY TRUCCO The work is doubly apt. Yes, MoMA reopened in October with a flourish after closing for four months to put the finishing touches on its dramatically enlarged Midtown headquarters. And yes, the museum has undergone yet another renovation and expansion, as that ambivalent “again.” implies—a $450 million collaboration between mega-firm Gensler and Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the architectural team that brought us Lincoln Center’s stylish 2010 renovations and the adventurous Shed performance space in Hudson Yards. But you can also read a note of triumph and, perhaps, relief in Steinbach’s prominently placed installation. From the moment you enter the newly spacious lobby, cool and contemporary with black walnut wood paneling and whimsical ceiling lights that serenely rise and fall, MoMA just feels right—for the first time in a long time. Measuring a colossal 708,000 square feet, the museum has 30 percent more elbow room, nearly all of it exhibition space. Three airy floors of galleries, many devoted to the Facing page, clockwise from top left: MoMA’s Blade Stair is a rule-defying addition to the expanded museum: a functional minimalist sculpture that structurally and metaphorically is as light as a feather; Pablo Picasso’s “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” from 1907 now hangs in Gallery 503, where it is in dialogue with works by Louise Bourgeois and Faith Ringgold; exterior view of the Blade Stair Atrium on West 53rd Street; visitors to the museum enter under a canopy on West 53rd Street; an installation view of Gallery 514, “Paris 1920s,” showing Constantin Brancusi’s sculpture “Blond Negress II,” Tarsila do Amaral’s “The Moon” and Fernand Léger’s “Three Women.” IN NEW YORK | DECEMBER 2019-JANUARY 2020 | INNEWYORK.COM

and Edward Durell Stone dropped like a glass-fronted alien among West 53rd Street’s genteel town houses. Subsequent expansions engineered by Philip Johnson in 1964, Cesar Pelli in 1984 and Yoshio Taniguchi in 2004 did much to transform the building, and street, into a corporate canyon of glass and steel that “brings to mind the headquarters of Darth Vader’s hedge fund,” as architecture critic Michael Kimmelman put it. No one ever accused MoMA of being warm and fuzzy. The new MoMA transforms many of those chilly fundamentals into assets, warming things up with white oak floors and using those miles of glass to embrace the Midtown cityscape almost as part of the collection. It offers visitors the architectural gift of the Blade Stair, a staircase enclosed in a bird’s-eye maple atrium and braced by a 6-inch-thick sliver of vertical spine that makes the steps appear to float. Though not a statement building like the Metropolitan Museum of Art or an idiosyncratic one of a kind like the Guggenheim Museum or Paris’ Fondation Louis Vuitton, MoMA instead shines brightly as a vibrant, engaging, wellthought-out environment that is equally hospitable to its

unrivaled permanent collection, expand seamlessly from the older building into the new West Wing, former home to the Museum of American Folk Art. And though it’s now (a) a stretch to see everything in one day and (b) easy to get lost, your chances of a memorable experience are quadrupled by a spectacular rehanging of the permanent collection; smart additions like the Creativity Lab, where you can unleash your inner artist; expanded spaces for performances and experimental programming; and abundant creature comforts, including multiple eating options overseen by restaurateur Danny Meyer and well-placed lounges, where you can catch your breath and revel in the wonders you’ve taken in. Expansions are nothing new at MoMA, where the building has consistently had trouble accommodating the museum’s growing collection and the changing demands of contemporary art. Founded in 1929 in modest rented quarters, MoMA claimed its first permanent home in 1939, a tidy, six-story International Style building by Philip L. Goodwin

And a highlight of the reopening is “Sur moderno,” the unveiling of the magnificent Patricia Phelps de Cisneros gift of Latin American abstract art. In keeping with MoMA’s new ethos, relevant examples from the permanent collection make cameo appearances—like Piet Mondrian’s rhythmic “Broadway Boogie Woogie,” the inspiration for Jesús Rafael Soto’s “Double Transparencia” seen vibrating on the adjoining wall. So arrive early, brave the crowds and settle in. The new MoMA is looking very good at 90.

incomparable art collection and the three million visitors who come to see it each year. And that’s reason to cheer. Which brings us to Part II of the MoMA transformation, the reimagining of the art. Enriched by the lion’s share of the museum’s 24 new galleries, the permanent collection is now presented chronologically, thematically and inclusively. Instead of galleries devoted only to painting, sculpture or video, any combination of these and other mediums like photography, architecture and design can come together as needed to showcase a theme, complete with the attendant affinities and frictions. It’s like seeing art in the real world. The sensation is thrilling. The reimagining opens the way for galleries like “Paris 1920s,” which matches up paintings by Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, Stuart Davis and bon vivant Gerald Murphy with a Surrealist Man Ray chess set and a gorgeous black lacquer screen by modernist designer Eileen Gray. Or “Breaking the Mold,” where Minimalist pieces by Sol LeWitt, Donald Judd and Dan Flavin meet up with a sexually charged 1938 watercolor by Italian artist Carol Rama and a video of hand movements by choreographer Yvonne Rainer. Or the heart-stopping, window-backed gallery devoted exclusively to Brancusi sculptures. The reimagining also puts the permanent collection in flux. Galleries will change every six to nine months, almost like temporary exhibitions, keeping things fresh and allowing more work from MoMA’s vast collection to see daylight. That means Vincent van Gogh’s “The Starry Night” will still be on view, just surrounded by different companions. Another plus: increased opportunities for boutique shows taken from the permanent collection, like “Frank O’Hara, Lunchtime Poet.” Set in a small gallery like a visual palate cleanser, this snapshot of New York’s midcentury art and literary culture includes a Larry Rivers portrait of O’Hara, whose day job was as a MoMA curator. What else has been reimagined? You no longer need to hunt for work by women artists, artists of color and artists from Latin America, Asia and Africa. Two sizable solo shows celebrate the provocative videos of New York perfor-
