Britney Spears Musical Sets Premiere Date
Plans are afoot to put some old hit songs by Britney Spears into a stage musical about woke princesses, and the hope is that the result isn’t “Toxic.”
The Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C., announced Thursday that it will stage Once Upon a One More Time, featuring Spears’ tunes, including “Oops! I Did It Again,” “Lucky,” “Stronger” and “Toxic.”
The musical will have an original story written by Jon Hartmere about classic fairy tale princesses — Cinderella, Snow White and Little Mermaid, among them — who are transformed after reading The Feminine Mystique, a landmark feminist text.
