I don’t know if I should cry or do the dance of joy, because there’s a new musical coming, and it’s all Britney Spears Songs.
Brtiney Spears new musical, Once Upon a One More Time, is basically like a Disney movie on crack. There will be Cinderella, Snow White, and a bunch of other fairy-tale characters we all love.
Except they will be singing and dancing to Britney Spears and that’s just the best news I have ever heard.
Britney is way excited about it! “This is a dream come true for me!” were her exact words.
Which, means Britney sits around dreaming about things like fairy-tale princesses singing her songs. So, that’s what the real magic is here.
The writer, Jon Hartmere, told the New York Times had this to say about the plot, “Cinderella is having an existential crisis, and she has a posse of famous princesses, and her stepmother is the main antagonist, and there’s also Prince Charming and a dwarf we’ve never met — the eighth dwarf — and a narrator who is unhappy his system is being dismantled before his eyes.”
And then he went on to say (because apparently that wasn’t a complicated enough plot), “These women have been in this hermetically sealed world, and then they start to get deeper into modern ideas — second and third-wave feminism — and also explore how stories are passed down to us, and where we get our norms from. But it’s also super fun and funny.”
There will be 23 songs in the musical. And they will all be Britney Spears Songs. Oops, they did it again.
They plan to start production this fall in Chicago, and then move the show to Broadway.
Yup. Britney is going to be a broadway baby.
This is actually happening.
