Britney Spears fans who sing “Gimme More” get exactly that.
A Princess of Pop-inspired musical is coming to Broadway in the summer of 2023 — and it could drive fans crazy.
Once Upon a One More Time will debut at the Marquis Theater on June 23, following previews beginning May 13.
The comedy integrates the Crossroads star’s eclectic pop music hits with classic storybook characters like Cinderella, Snow White, the Little Mermaid and more.
Spears’ songs, including “Oops I Did It Again”, “Lucky”, “Circus” and “Toxic”, will be included in the show.
The casting is not yet known. The premise was originally conceived by the Shakespeare Theater Company in Washington, DC; It premiered in December 2021 and due to popular demand its limited run was extended.
The production was billed as “a fast-paced musical adventure about smashing the glass slipper and reclaiming your own happily ever after”. In it, according to the official description, “beloved classic fairy tale princesses gather for their two-week book club longing for a new story.” When a “renegade fairy godmother” comes to visit, the assembled girls discover that “life is more than bird clothes and true love’s kiss!”
The show is produced by James L. Nederlander and Hunter Arnold and directed and choreographed by Keone and Mari Madrid.
The musical was scheduled to open off Broadway in Chicago in 2019. However, the show was pushed back to 2020 and later postponed indefinitely due to the pandemic.
The pop star isn’t personally involved with the show; However, a representative told the reporter that all music selections have been licensed and approved by their publishers and songwriters.
The “Gimme More” crooner attended an early reading of the play in 2019 and gave it her seal of approval by calling it “a dream come true,” according to Playbill.
“I’m so excited to have a musical of my songs — especially one set in such a magical world full of characters I grew up with, love and adore,” she said.
