The show is not about Spears’s life, but rather it’s an alternative take on fairy tales characters. The musical-comedy is about a fortnightly book club which includes Snow White, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty reading through a collection of Grimms’ fairy tales. But when the women wish for new reading material, a fairy godmother brings them The Feminine Mystique, which drastically alters their lives.
Spears seems thrilled by the concept of the musical.
“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,” Spears said in a statement. “This is a dream come true for me!”
Kristin Hanggi, a Tony nominee for Rock of Ages, is going to direct and Jon Hartmere who wrote the screenplay for The Upside, wrote the original book.
Performances will begin October 29 at the James M. Nederlander Theatre before a November 13 official opening. The limited pre-Broadway engagement is scheduled through December 1.
