Take a flashback to the early 90s, and one would see a boombox echoing the tunes of an adolescent Britney Spears from her snake-wearing days to those more called for rocking and rolling. However, the Queen of Pop is still hanging onto our hearts as the broadway musical curated from her hits, named Once Upon a One More Time, finally has its casting list.
One of which is American Idol season 1 runner-up Justin Guarini, who will be stepping into royal shoes as Prince Charming. Besides him is Briga Heelan as Cinderella, Simon Callow as the Narrator, and Emily Skinner as Stepmother.
Once Upon a One More Time starts with a limited run on April 14 at Broadway In Chicago’s James M. Nederlander Theater, to go on with its opening night on April 30, and then finishing its stretch on May 17. Tickets are on sale now.
