The show won’t take inspiration from Britney Spears’ life like many other jukebox musicals. Instead, it will use her back catalogue to populate a story based around a book club made up of classic fairytale princesses. Fans now cannot wait to see their favourite princesses namely Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, Snow White and Cinderella taking on the same stage and singing Britney’s famous songs.

Britney Spears reportedly attended some of the readings about the musical.

The musical will be directed by Kristin Hanggi and choreographed by Keone and Mari Madrid. The show is set to have a production this fall in Chicago before heading to New York for an expected Broadway run in 2020.
