A new musical is preparing for a world premiere in Chicago before making its way to Broadway. The musical, Once Upon a One More Time, tells the story of a royal book club made up of some of our favorite fairy tale princesses like Snow White and Cinderella. While the princesses question the way their fairy tales played out with the fairy godmother, the plot will be guided by some of Britney Spears’ hits.
While Britney Spears has no other part in the musical than the use of her discography, she is still excited to see her art making its way into musical theater. “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,” she said. “This is a dream come true for me!”
Some of our favorite stars will be involved in the creation of this production, though. Choreographing couple Keone and Mari Madrid are the masterminds behind the dance numbers in the musical. The show will also be under the direction of Tony Award nominee Kristin Hangii.
Once Upon a One More Time officially open November 13 at the James M. Nederlander Theatre.
