Alanis Morissette aims for Broadway

NEW YORK

If Alanis Morissette gets her wish, Broadway will swallow a jagged little pill.

The singer-songwriter said Friday she hopes to adapt her 1995 breakthrough album “Jagged Little Pill” for the stage. Though no story is yet written, a workshop is planned for next year.

Broadway veteran Tom Kitt , who adapted Green Day’s “American Idiot” as well as the original, Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical “Next to Normal,” will provide orchestrations and arrangements.

The show, right now called “Jagged Little Pill,” will include the albums hits, including “You Oughta Know,” “Ironic,” “You Learn” and “Head Over Feet.”

Fire burns Eminem’s childhood home

DETROIT

A fire has burned the childhood home of rapper Eminem in Detroit.

The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press report crews responded Thursday evening to the boarded-up bungalow, which is pictured on the cover of Eminem’s just-released “The Marshall Mathers LP 2.” It also was on the musician’s 2000 album “The Marshall Mathers LP.”

The blaze damaged portions of the small home’s top floor. The cause of the fire wasn’t immediately known.

Public records show the home was listed as the address of Eminem’s mother, Deborah Mathers, starting in the 1980s. It later changed hands.

The home was listed earlier this year for online auction by the state. A past owner tried to sell it on eBay for $500,000 but received no bids.
