Britney Spears musical Once Upon a One More Time to open on Broadway

New musical Once Upon A One More Time, featuring the music of Grammy Award-winning pop star Britney Spears, will open on Broadway this Spring.

Produced by Tony Award winning producers James L. Nederlander and Hunter Arnold, the show will play the Marquis Theatre in New York City from 13 May 2023, with an official opening night on 22 June 2023.

Directed by Drama Desk-nominated director and choreographers Keone & Mari Madrid (Beyond Babel, Karate Kid), Once Upon A One More Time features an original story written by Jon Hartmere (bare, The Upside).

The wider creative team includes creative consultant David Leveaux (Nine, NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar LIVE), Scenic Designer Anna Fleischle (Hangmen, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie), Costume & Hair Designer Loren Elstein (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead), Lighting Designer Kenneth Posner (Wicked, Beetlejuice), Sound Designer Andrew Keister (KPOP, On Your Feet!), and Projection Designer Sven Ortel (Newsies).

The show premiered last year at the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington to positive reviews.

The story flips traditional fairytales, with Cinderella, Snow White, Little Mermaid and others gathering for their fortnightly book club, when-oh baby, baby!-a rogue fairy godmother grants their wish for a new story, by dropping The Feminine Mystique into their corseted laps. This spurs a royal revelation: there is more to life than bird-made dresses and true love’s kiss!

Once Upon A One More Time weaves the chart-topping anthems of the Princess of Pop herself, Britney Spears – including “Oops I Did It Again”, “Stronger”, “Lucky”, “Circus”, and “Toxic” – into this musical adventure about claiming your own happily ever after.

The cast will be announced soon.
