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.
