TORONTO — Canadians will have another chance to swallow a “Jagged Little Pill” this autumn as the musical based on Alanis Morissette’s album of the same name returns to Toronto.

Mirvish Productions says the musical made its Toronto premiere off-season last year, but it will now play as part of the regular 2023/2024 season, starting in October.

The show is inspired by the Ottawa musician’s 1995 debut, with a Tony Award-winning book by acclaimed writer Diablo Cody.

Also in Mirvish’s fall lineup is the Tony-winning “Six,” a modern retelling of the lives of Henry VIII’s six wives, presented as a pop concert, which will run in Edmonton in August before moving to Toronto in September.

Longtime favourites “Les Miserables,” “42nd Street” and Disney’s “Aladdin” will also be part of the upcoming season.
