Alanis Morissette's 1995 album "Jagged Little Pill" is the inspiration for a musical having its world premiere at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge.

The musical combines Morissette's emotionally sharp lyrics with the story of a Connecticut family struggling with many of the issues and ills of 2018.

"Jagged Little Pill" runs at the American Repertory Theater through July 15.
