Further casting has been announced for the Broadway premiere of Once Upon A One More Time, a new musical powered by the hits of Britney Spears.
Two-time Tony Award nominee Jennifer Simard (Company, Mean Girls) and two-time Tony Award nominee Adam Godley (The Lehman Trilogy, Hulu’s “The Great”) will star as ‘Stepmother’ and ‘The Narrator’.
They join previously announced stars Briga Heelan (“Great News”, “Ground Floor”) as Cinderella, Justin Guarini (“American Idol”, Wicked) as Prince Charming, and Aisha Jackson (Frozen, Paradise Square) as Snow White.
Helmed by internationally acclaimed, Drama Desk-nominated Director & Choreographers Keone & Mari Madrid (Beyond Babel, Karate Kid), the musical begins previews Saturday, May 13, 2023, at the Marquis Theatre in New York City, with opening night set for Thursday, June 22, 2023.
Once Upon A One More Time features an original story written by Jon Hartmere (bare, The Upside) that flips the script on your favorite fairytale icons. Cinderella, Snow White, Little Mermaid and other classic storybook characters gather 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. The arrival of this new tome spurs a royal revelation: there is more to life than bird-made dresses and true love’s kiss! The ultimate revisionist fairytale for anyone who yearns to feel “stronger than yesterday,” Once Upon A One More Time weaves the chart-topping anthems of Britney Spears – including “Oops I Did It Again,” “Lucky,” “Circus,” and “Toxic” – into a heartwarming and uproarious musical adventure about taking happily ever after into your own hands.
Further casting is to be announced.
