A Britney Spears Jukebox Musical Is Coming to Broadway

Britney Spears musical

'Once Upon a One More Time' is gonna give the gays everything they want.

Broadway is about get very "Lucky."

A brand new comedy musical set to the music of Britney Spears, Once Upon a One More Time, is set to premiere at Chicago's James M. Nederlander Theatre with an eye towards Broadway. The show will run from October 29 to December 1 in Chicago prior to a New York run.

Though there aren't yet details about which songs in Spears' extensive discography will be a part of the show's lineup, but there are some details of the plot. In the show, Cinderella, Snow White, and some other princesses get together for a book club when a "rogue fairy godmother" switches out their book choice with the feminist classic, The Feminine Mystique. This spurs the princesses to ask if there's more to life than just "bird-made dresses and true love's kiss."

Given the plot, we expect to hear songs like "Lucky," "Sometimes," "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman," "Stronger," and "Overprotected" -- but those are just our guesses!

"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 said in a statement. "This is a dream come true for me!"

The musical features an original book by Jon Hartmere (The Upside, Bare) and direction by Tony nominee Kristin Hanggi (Rock of Ages). MTV Video Music Award nominee Keone and Mari Madrid, who choreographed Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself," will choreograph the show.

"Throughout her career, Britney has captivated fans across the globe with her singular brand of energy and resilience," James L. Nederlander, the show's producer, said. "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."

Unfortunately, right now, it doesn't seem that Spears herself will make it onto the stage, but we can always hope. There were once rumors that she'd replace Christina Applegate in the Broadway revival of Sweet Charity, after all.

Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale in August, while dates and a venue for the Broadway run are forthcoming. Until then, stream Glory on iTunes.
