Once Upon a Time One More Time on Broadway Background

Once Upon a Time One More Time came to Broadway, following a four and a half week ‘special attraction’ showing at the James M. Nederlander Theatre in Chicago.

The musical was written by Jon Hartmere, a screenplay writer who has written for broadcast TV companies and streaming services like: Fox, Disney and Amazon. Hartmere chose to use songs originally performed by Britney Spears for the musical’s soundtrack.

Spears is one of the best selling pop stars from the late 1990’s and early 2000’s and she has sold more than 150 million records around the world. Spears has countless awards and has been an iconic female role model for some time now.

Direction for Once Upon a Time One More Time was led by Kristin Hanggi who was also the director of the Tony Award nominated Broadway show, Rock of Ages which closed in 2015 and also featured modern pop songs throughout the show.

This musical follows a group of famous Disney princesses, including Cinderella and Snow White, who gather for their monthly book club meeting to read their own personal stories from Grimm's Fairy Tales. This time though, a rogue fairy godmother comes by and replaced their usual book with, The Feminine Mystique, the book that is known for igniting the second wave feminist movement in the United States in the mid 1960’s.

Featured Britney Spears Songs

Songs from Britney Spears like Oops I Did It Again, Lucky and Toxic are featured during the show and help propel the story forward, empowering the Disney princesses to start to stand up for themselves and carve out their own lives. The show is designed to reach women with the alternative truth about the erroneous ‘Happily Ever After’ story book ending.

Spears Does Nor Appear

Spears is not actually performing in the show although some websites make it seem like she is. Spears did sign off on the use of her song anthems and she vigorously supports the feminist movement that this show empowers.

Is Once Upon a Time One More Time Good for Kids?

This show is intended for people of all ages to enjoy, but young and tween females are clearly the target audiences.
