From Vegas to Broadway!

 

Some of Britney Spears’ major hits like ‘…Baby One More Time,’ ‘Stronger,’ ‘Oops!… I Did It Again’ and ‘Toxic’ will be making an appearance in a brand new broadway musical called Once Upon a One More Time.

 

 

 

According to The New York Times, “The theatre owner James L. Nederlander announced Tuesday that he is producing a new musical featuring the song catalog of Ms. Spears — one of the best-selling pop artists of all time — that explores an alternative arc for some classic fairy tale princesses.”  In a statement made by Britney herself, she says, “I’m so excited to have a musical with my songs — especially one that takes place in such a magical world filled with characters that I grew up on, who I love and adore.  This is a dream come true for me!”

 

 

 

 The website description reads, “Once Upon A Time… a group of famous fairy tale princesses gather for their fortnightly book club, to read together from – well, the only book they’ve ever known – Grimm’s Fairy Tales. When Cinderella makes a desperate wish for a new story, a rogue fairy godmother drops The Feminine Mystique in her corseted lap. Oh baby, baby… could there really be more to life than bridesmaid dresses, friendships with woodland creatures, and dreams of a prince’s kiss?”

 

The description continues, “The ultimate end-all fairytale for anyone who yearns to feel “Stronger” than yesterday, ONCE UPON A ONE MORE TIME is set to the universal chart-topping anthems of the Princess of Pop herself, Britney Spears. Hits from “Oops I Did It Again” and “Lucky” to “Circus” and “Toxic” ignite this uproarious and heartwarming adventure about letting your hair down, gaining your sea legs, smashing the glass slipper, and claiming your own kingdom.”

 

 

And who will be directing? His name is Jon Hartmere and Kristin Hanggi.  Jon once wrote the screenplay for ‘The Upside’ whereas Kristin, who was a Tony nominee for ‘Rock of Ages.’  Keone and Mari Madrid are hired to choreograph and their names sound familiar, it’s because they are! Keon and Mari who are married, are both YouTube stars and they’ve competed on ‘World of Dance.’
Once Upon a One More Time‘ is set to open in Chicago at the James M. Nederlander Theatre on November 13 and will run right through until December 1.
