Hit me Broadway one more time.
Piece Of Me is coming to an end this year. Britney has plans to tour it around the world this summer then round out the final dates back in Vegas, but after that... who knows. She could create an entirely new show and relaunch a residency, work on a Glory followup or... oversee a show on Broadway?!
Forbes reports Brit's longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, initiated a meeting with theatre veteran Jerry Mitchell to discuss transforming the pop star's greatest hits into a theatrical production.
Mitchell created a musical centering around the life story of Gloria and Emilio Estefan with On Your Feet!. He's also the mastermind behind Kinky Boots. “We’re telling a true story about real people, so the authenticity is really important to me,” he said.
However, Mitchell has a different vision in mind for the "Slumber Party" singer's catalog. “It would NOT be autobiographical,” he added. Instead, he'll tie in her iconic hits with a fictional narrative a la Mamma Mia!.
As it stands, nothing is set in stone nor has a timeline been decided on, but the seed is planted. It could certainly work – just revisit Glee's legendary episode on the Queen. I'm still pretending the second special never happened.
Now if we can just lock down a third Glory...
