Britney Spears Cinderella-Themed Musical Starts Performances Tonight on Broadway, See Video


Yes, there’s a musical with songs associated with Britney Spears starting performances tonight on Broadway.,

“Once Upon a One More Time” opens officially June 22nd at the Marriott Marquis Theater. There’s a video of a rehearsal below.

This is dance show based loosely on “Cinderella.” She’s blonde, and played Briga Heelan, but she’s not playing Britney and she’s not in either of the advanced videos. They’re saving her for later in this saga.

The show has added the estimable David Leveaux as creative consultant. The directors are Keone & Mari Madrid.

This sounds like a fun summer show. All of Britney’s songs will included like “Oops I Did It Again,” “Lucky,” “Circus,” and “Toxic”. The dancing looks good. Let’s hope Britney comes in for the opening night. She could give Broadway a needed jolt.
