Britney Spears Marked Her Birthday With Big News & Her Music Is Heading To Broadway
It's a Britney musical!
Britney Spears celebrated her 41st birthday in style on Friday, as news dropped that her music is hitting the musical stage one more time!
Once Upon A One More Time, a jukebox musical featuring the pop star's classic hits, is slated to hit Broadway in the summer of 2023, Variety reports.
The musical will be directed and choreographed by Keone & Mari Madrid and will begin reviews in May, with opening night slated for June 22, 2023.
No casting choices have been announced at this point.
Once Upon a One More Time was supposed to make its Broadway debut in 2020 but the pandemic scrapped those plans, and it was ultimately introduced at The Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C. last year, reports Deadline. The show was sold out and wrapped up in January, People reports.
The original story was written by Jon Hartmere and puts a feminist twist on classic fairytales.
It focuses on the princesses Cinderella, Snow White and the Little Mermaid and what would happen if a fairy godmother gave them the Betty Friedman book The Feminine Mystique.
The musical will feature various Spears songs such as Toxic, Circus,Oops I Did It Again and Stronger.
Spears will not be helping to develop the new show.
It wasn't immediately clear how she felt about her musical hitting Broadway, as she didn't comment about it on Friday morning.
However, she did previously comment on what she thought of Once Upon a One More Time, according to People.
"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," Spears previously said in a statement about the show the outlet reports.
"This is a dream come true for me!"
