It’s Broadway, bitch.
Britney Spears’s managers, Larry Rudolph and Adam Leber, have begun exploring the idea of bringing her songs to the Broadway stage, Forbes reports. They’ve already met with gay theater veteran Jerry Mitchell, who famously created Broadway Bares, to discuss using her music catalog for a major theatrical production.
Mitchell previously helped bring Gloria and Emilio Estefan’s inspirational life story to the stage through their songs in On Your Feet!, but the Spears show would reportedly not be that kind of jukebox musical. Instead, her songs would tie together a fictional narrative in the same way that ABBA songs advanced the story in Mamma Mia!
“It would not be autobiographical,” the potential director confirmed.
If Spears wanted to star in the musical or be involved in the creative process, the project could come at a good time for the busy superstar. She confirmed last month that her popular Las Vegas residency, Britney: Piece of Me, will end in December after four years.
No timeline has been set for the musical, but please take our money now.
