Alanis Morissette will be hosting a livestream benefit based on her chart-topping studio album Jagged Little Pill. Released in the mid-’90s, the album won Morissette a flurry of accolades, like nine Grammy nominations (winning five, including Best Album of the Year), while becoming the first Canadian to achieve double diamond sales — Morissette, 21 at the time, held the record as the youngest with the Grammy achievement before Taylor Swift in 2010. Dubbed You Live, You Learn: A Night With Alanis and Jagged Little Pill, the upcoming online performance is a Broadway musical adaptation of the album, featuring all the original Broadway cast members.

Morissette herself will be singing alongside the rest of the performers, joined by co-host Justin Hilton, founder of SafePlace International. Diablo Cody, the Broadway show’s writer; Diane Paulus, director; Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, choreographer and Tom Kitt, orchestrator will be joining as special guests, too. Producers Vivek J. Tiwary, Arvind Ethan David and Eva Price expressed in a joint statement their excitement “to share music and [the] musical’s messages of joy, healing, resilience and gratitude.” They added, “we give immense thanks to AmEx for giving us the opportunity and for our cast and creative team for keeping the Jagged Little Spirit thriving during this trying time.” Proceeds from the livestream will be going to the Actors Fund, a relief that offers emergency assistance to professionals in the theater community.

The event will take place on May 19, 8 p.m. EDT on Jagged Little Pill‘s Facebook and YouTube channels.

Most recently, Rivers Cuomo has offered an intimate cover of Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box.”
