Once Upon a One More Time which made its world premiere at Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C. in 2021 is set to be staged on Broadway in 2023 spring. The musical is scored by Britney Spears hit songs. The new show starts previews on May 13 with an official opening night on June 22 at the Marquis Theatre. It will include the pop star’s many tracks such as Oops!… I Did It Again, Lucky, Stronger, Toxic, and more.

Written by Jon Hartmere, the musical’s original story centers on classic fairy tale characters including Cinderella, Snow White, Little Mermaid, who discuss the same book, Grimm’s Fairy Tales, the only one they have ever known, when they gather for book club. Their routine changes when one day a rogue fairy godmother drops The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan into their laps. This feminist text transforms the princesses’ attitude to life and love, encouraging them to ‘write’ their own “happily ever after” story.

When the musical was first announced in 2019, Britney Spears shared her excitement to Playbill. “I’m so excited to have a musical with my songs – especially one that takes place in such a magical world filled with characters that I grew up on, who I love and adore,” she said. “This is a dream come true for me!”
