The Princess of Pop is joining the princesses of Disney on an unexpected stage.

A new musical is coming to Broadway and will feature a song catalog by pop icon Britney Spears.

The musical comedy, titled, “Once Upon a One More Time,” offers a feminist twist on classic fairy tale princess stories and currently includes 23 songs from Spears’s collection, including “Oops I Did It Again,” “Toxic,” “Lucky,” and more. It is set to open at the James M. Nederlander Theatre in Chicago this fall before heading to Broadway. (RELATED: Britney-Spears-Themed Musical Coming to Broadway)

The musical is said to be a revisionist tale of the classic Disney princess stories told through a humorous, feminist lens.

When Cinderella makes a desperate wish for a new story to read in her book club, which includes princesses like Sleeping Beauty and Snow White, a contemporary fairy godmother leaves her with none other than Betty Friedan’s feminist classic, “The Feminine Mystique.”

“Oh baby, baby… could there really be more to life than bridesmaid dresses, friendships with woodland creatures and dreams of a prince’s kiss?” the theatre’s website says.

But while the “Baby One More Time singer’s music is at the center of the show, Spears herself is not. However, she has already attended one of the show’s readings and is “Anticipating” this new chapter.

“I’m so excited to have a musical with my songs — especially one that takes place in such a magical world filled with characters that I grew up on, who I love and adore,” Spears said in a statement. “This is a dream come true for me!”

The pop superstar and sex symbol has had a pretty tumultuous past, but perhaps her happily ever after is on the horizon.
