An original musical based on the music of pop star Britney Spears is set to kick off in Chicago later this year.
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, this is a dream come true for me!
Britneyspears.com description of the show reads “Could there really be more to life than bird-made dresses and true love’s kiss? Set to the songs of Britney Spears, the Princess of Pop herself, ONCE UPON A ONE MORE TIME is an uproarious, irreverent look at the towering challenges, charms, and choices involved in finding that most elusive of endings: Happily Ever After.”
The musical features an original book by Jon Hartmere (The Upside, bare), with direction by Tony Award nominee Kristin Hanggi (Rock of Ages) and Choreography by MTV Video Music Award nominees Keone & Mari Madrid (Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself”; “World of Dance”).
Previews begin Tuesday, October 29, 2019 at the James M. Nederlander Theatre in Chicago, with an opening night of November 13, 2019, for its limited engagement through December 1, 2019, before heading to Broadway.
