‘American Idol’ Runner-Up Justin Guarini Starring in ‘Once Upon a One More Time’


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.

Joining the Nerds and Beyond team back in February 2019, Rachel Finucane graduated university with a Bachelor of Arts (Humanities) majoring in Screen Arts. She’s been passionate about all things television and film-related since penning her first Neighbours fanfiction aged twelve, before inevitably taking that pen to dabble in fashion, sports, and music. She can be spotted on Twitter at @rachelfinucane_.
