A Britney Spears Musical Is In The Works
Yes, we're getting a Britney Spears musical! But don't think it's going to be based on her life (although we'd be hella down to watch that too).

Can you believe that this album was released 20 years ago today??!! I can’t. It’s definitely been the journey of a lifetime, full of ups and downs, but I’m grateful for every single moment of it all. Getting to know you all over the years has been such an incredible experience, and has made this all worth it. Thank you for your support from 20 years ago, all the way to today. I am blessed ❤️ #20yearsofbritney
Think of a Mamma Mia! style musical, the show will use her music to fit a different plot. In this case, the musical Once Upon a One More Time is going to blend plots from classic fairy tales with Britney's songs, with a very on-the-nose feminist twist.
The synopsis reads:
"Once Upon a Time Cinderella, Snow White, and the other fairytale princesses gather for their book club, when oh, baby, baby! a rogue fairy godmother drops The Feminine Mystique into their corseted laps, spurring a royal revelation. So, is "Toxic" about the evil queen who poisons Sleeping Beauty? Do Cinderella's animal friends have to "Work B*tch"? The musical will start performances in Chicago October 29 and closing December 1 on its way to a planned opening on Broadway.
