OOPS…Britney Spears’s Music In A New Broadway Musical!!! Really???

  • Timothy Fitzgerald

Yes, it’s true!  The “Hit Me Baby One More Time” lady is coming to Broadway via Chicago.

Spears’ songs are front and center in a new musical comedy entitled “Once Upon a One More Time," according to theater owner James L. Nederlander today.

The show will have its premiere in fall at Broadway In Chicago's James M. Nederlander Theatre before heading to Broadway. Previews begin October 29, with an opening night of November 13 and a limited run through December 1.

Sounds like an interesting premise for a musical involves a humorous take on several classic Disney characters.

Now I am not one to judge before a product is released and reviewed but this just feels wrong.  I am personally not a big fan of Spears but there is just something about a musical with her music coming to Broadway. I will be the first to admit I was wrong if it turns out to be a hit.   It seems we are starting to see a trend of musicals coming out with the music of popular artist.

I remember when Mamma Mia came out with the music of ABBA.  Yes it was successful and even spawned a movie version and a sequel.  And I love the music of ABBA but not a big fan of the show. It just didn’t work for me.

Has anyone seen the Go-Go’s musical, Head Over Heels? Was wondering what you thought of this? So folks, thoughts or comments?? Want to hear from you!
