Britney Spears' Hits Will Score New Broadway Jukebox Musical Once Upon a One More Time
“This is a dream come true for me!” Britney Spears said in a statement
It’s Broadway, bitch!
The music of Britney Spears will feature in Once Upon a One More Time, a new musical that that’s headed to the stage this fall. Written by Jon Hartmere (The Upside, Bare) and directed by Kristin Hanggi (Rock of Ages), the show follows the exploits of a group of fairy tale princesses who’ve gathered for a book club meeting — only to have a copy of Betty Friedan feminist touchstone dropped into the mix by “a rogue fairy godmother.”
“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, 37, said in a statement. “This is a dream come true for me!”

The show, which will feature choreography by World of Dance stars Keone and Mari Madrid, will open on Nov. 13 at James M. Nederlander Theatre in Chicago before ultimately heading to New York City.
“Throughout her career, Britney has captivated fans across the globe with her singular brand of energy and resilience,” added producer James L. Nederlander. “For three years, we have been working closely with her to develop a concept that perfectly encapsulates her unique spirit, and are so thrilled to finally bring this joyous and electrifying show to the stage.”
