Once Upon a One More Time - a new musical comedy featuring the hits of Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum-selling recording artist Britney Spears - is heading to Broadway stronger than yesterday. Check back for information on Once Upon a One More Time tickets on New York Theatre Guide. The Once Upon a One More Time musical combines the songs of a pop princess with the stories of fairytale princesses. Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and more are part of a book club looking for a new story, and thanks to a fairy godmother, The Feminine Mystique appears. Betty Friedan's 1963 book, about how there's more to womanhood than being a housewife, inspires the princesses to rethink their own lives. Is there more to life than waiting around for a prince to bring them happily ever after, or can they create it themselves? This story is set to more than 20 hit songs by Britney Spears, often referred to as the Princess of Pop. The multi-award-winning singer and musician's songs include "Oops!..I Did It Again," "Toxic," "...Baby One More Time," "Lucky," and "Circus." To date, she has released nine albums and earned a Grammy Award, seven Billboard Music Awards, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, among other accolades. The show has been in development since 2017, and its first presentation (which Spears attended and approved) was in 2018. The world premiere of Once Upon a One More Time was set for 2019 at Chicago's Nederlander Theatre, but it got postponed and then canceled when the pandemic hit. The show finally premiered at the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington D.C. in November 2021 ahead of its Broadway transfer. Two other shows besides Once Upon a One More Time on Broadway feature Spears's songs. & Juliet, a revisionist sequel to Romeo & Juliet, includes five of her songs, and Moulin Rouge! The Musical, an adaptation of Baz Luhrmann's same-named film, includes "Toxic" in a medley. Only Once Upon a One More Time, however, exclusively features Spears's catalog. Tickets to Once Upon a One More Time in New York will be available soon.
Perk up your ears — the new musical Shucked is on Broadway in 2023. Get Shucked tickets on New York Theatre Guide now. The Shucked musical takes place in Cob County, a town surrounded by a thick wall of corn. It sustain's the town's livelihood and (literally) keeps everyone together — until the crop begins to die. So the farmgirl Maizy ventures out to the big city of Tampa and comes back with a "corn doctor" to help save the town. But he might have a husk around his true identity. The creative team behind Shucked are the cream of the crop. Songwriters Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally are behind tunes by Kacey Musgraves, Reba McEntire, Sheryl Crow, Kelly Clarkson, and more, and now make their Broadway debuts. Bookwriter Robert Horn won a 2019 Tony Award for writing the book for the Tootsie musical, and director Jack O'Brien is a five-time Tony Award winner for directing Hairspray, Henry VI, and all three parts of The Coast of Utopia. His other musical credits include Catch Me If You Can, The Full Monty, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. O'Brien, Clark, McAnally, and Horn first came together to create Moonshine, a country musical based on the world of the comedy variety show Hee Haw. Moonshine's 2015 world premiere in Dallas flopped, however, so the team separated from the Hee Haw brand and completely rewrote the story. This new, entirely original iteration has become Shucked on Broadway. Shucked premiered in 2022 at Salt Lake City, Utah's Pioneer Theatre Company. Most of the Utah cast transferred to Broadway with the show, including Caroline Innerbichler, Alex Newell, John Behlmann, and Andrew Durand. Get ready to have plenty of corny fun at this new Broadway musical. Get tickets to Shucked in New York now.
Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford star in the latest Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Check back for Sweeney Todd tickets on New York Theatre Guide. The Sweeney Todd musical is a tale of malice, murder, and meat pies. The title character, a barber from London, has returned to the city after being wrongly imprisoned by a merciless judge many years before. He's determined to reunite with his family, but equally importantly, get revenge, and uses his old profession to do it. After all, his razors can cut not just hair, but also throats. Todd finds an unlikely accomplice in a meat pie shop owner named Mrs. Lovett, who, unbeknownst to her customers, disposes of Todd's victims by serving them up as dinner. Todd initially plans to only target the judge and his servant, but his and Mrs. Lovett's scheme quickly spirals out of control. Sweeney Todd features well-known Sondheim songs like "A Little Priest," "Johanna," and "The Ballad of Sweeney Todd." The 2023 revival is the first to feature Jonathan Tunick's original orchestrations, written for a 26-piece band, since the premiere of Sweeney Todd on Broadway in 1979. Len Cariou and Angela Lansbury made the roles of Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett iconic with their performances in that production. Both won Tony Awards for their portrayals, and Sweeney Todd won six additional Tonys, including Best Musical. Sondheim won for Best Original Score, Hugh Wheeler won for Best Book of a Musical, and legendary Broadway multihyphenate Harold Prince won for Best Direction of a Musical. Sweeney Todd has been revived on Broadway twice before: in 1989 with Bob Gunton and Beth Fowler, and in 2005 with Michael Cerveris and Patti LuPone. All four actors received Tony Award nominations for their performances. The show has also played four times in London; its 1980 premiere won the Best New Musical Olivier Award, and two of its revivals won Best Musical Revival. The musical was last revived off Broadway in 2017. That production was immersive: The Barrow Street Theatre was converted into Harrington's Pie & Mash Shop, the action took place all around the audience members, and a resident pie maker cooked and served traditional pie and mash before each performance. Josh Groban leads Sweeney Todd in New York in 2022. This is his second Broadway outing, following his turn as Pierre in Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 in 2017. He got a Tony nomination for his performance the following year, and his performance at that Tonys ceremony earned him two Emmy nominations. He's also a Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum musician known for songs like "You Raise Me Up" and "Believe." Opposite Groban as Todd is Annaleigh Ashford as Mrs. Lovett. A theatre veteran, she's a Tony winner for You Can't Take it With You and a Tony nominee for Kinky Boots. Her last Broadway appearance before Sweeney Todd was in another Sondheim revival: 2017's Sunday in the Park with George opposite Jake Gyllenhaal. She's also performed in popular musicals like Wicked, Legally Blonde, and Rent during her career. Thomas Kail, a Tony Award winner for Hamilton, directs Sweeney Todd. He reunites with fellow Tony-winning Hamilton collaborator Alex Lacamoire, who serves as music supervisor. Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd on Broadway in spring 2023. Sweeney Todd Broadway tickets will be available soon. (Top image by Franz Szony)
