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).

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.
