Britney Spears is going from Las Vegas to Broadway - or at least her music is. While the pop diva will not be in the musical production herself, twenty-three of her immortal hit songs will, and that will most likely be more than enough the draw people to see the musical. The musical is fittingly called Once Upon A One More Time, but anyone who was hoping for the storyline to be about the Oops! I Did It Again singers life will be disappointed. After all, Britney's life has been more than well-documented by the press since her adolescence anyway.
Once Upon A One More Time tells a story about some fairly well-known characters, namely Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel, and how they all get together in their book club discussing fairytales from the Grimm brothers. Another familiar face is the Fairy God Mother who introduces the princesses to the concept of feminism, by giving them the book The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan. While this may sound like a heavy topic, Once Upon A One More Time is promised to be really fun. Other characters will be Prince Charming and the mysterious eight dwarf from Snow White.
As reported by E! News, the musical comedy is produced by the James L. Nederlander Theater in Chicago and is directed by Kristin Hanggi who previously worked on Rock of Ages. Reportedly, Once Upon A One More Time will premier on November 13th, and will run until early December, after which it is said to be heading to Broadway.
Britney Spears has allegedly already attended one of the play readings, and she is said to be absolutely thrilled to have musical built around her music, featuring all of her favourite characters, calling it a dream come true. Once Upon A One More Time has been in the works for over three years, and according to the production, the Gimme More singer has been working closely with the rest of the team to create an amazing show.
Fans of Britney Spears, or of the Brothers Grimm's fairytale princesses will be lining up for tickets to this show, and who knows, perhaps one day the Toxic singer will make a surprise cameo?
