Why See Once Upon A One More Time?


The Britney Musical we All need

Hit Me Baby One More Time because a brand new musical which features the iconic hits of Britney Spears is heading to Chicago this fall! Written by Jon Hartmere Once Upon A One More Time will be directed by Tony Award nominee Kristin Hanggi and choreographed by MTV Video Music Award nominees Keone and Mari Madrid. The new musical will enjoy a run at the James M. Nederlander Theater in Chicago before heading to Broadway!

As the fairytale princesses gather for their regular book club they are amazed when a rogue fairy godmother drops The Feminine Mystique into their corseted laps. Accompanied by songs like "Baby One More Time", "Toxic" and "Gimme More" the princesses realise that there is more to life than true love's first kiss and pretty ball gowns. Looking at the challenges, choices and charms of 'Happily Ever After' Once Upon A One More Time is a tongue-in-cheek and jubilant exploration of the search for happiness, perfect for the 2019 audience!

Britney Spears

Starting her career as part of the iconic The Mickey Mouse Club (alongside the likes of Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling and Kerri Russell) Spears was always destined for greatness. Bursting onto the music scene with her 1999 debut album ...Baby One More Time Spears was skyrocketed to superstardom and reached the number one spot in over 18 countries! With nine studio albums (six of which hit the number one spot in the US), five number one singles, and a Grammy award, Britney has sold over 150 million records worldwide making her one of the world's most successful artists. Although there were some trying years in the mid-noughties, Brtiney has proven to be a stalwart icon and is sure to go down in history as one of the biggest pop-stars of all time!
