Well, the Tonys don’t even need to bother airing in 2019 because we already know what is going to win them all. Lin Manuel-Miranda must be at the trashiest of dive bars drinking cheap gin and wondering why he bothers looking to history for his muse and inspiration when the shiniest of shining Broadway ideas has been goat yodeling at him for years. Britney Spears is getting a musical treatment, y’all! And it sounds like she’s more than happy to sign off on her songs ruling the Great Cheeto White Way!
Us Weekly says Brit Brit took time out of her busy schedule of fashion shows and boyfriend humping on Instagram to fly to New York for a table read of an upcoming musical based on her songs. ABBA must be quaking in their boots because “Mamma Mia” is going to look like Scranton Community Theater compared to “Barefoot At The Gas Station” or whatever it is they want to call Brit’s musical (the working title is Hit Me Baby One More Time). A snitch says the musical is expected to drop in early 2019 and it’s been in the works for a while. Britney even likes it, as the source said she “responded really well” to it. I’m sure that was partially because her manager promised her they could go to the Times Square Olive Garden afterward.
Britney is going back to Las Vegas in early 2019 to begin her residency at the Park Theater, but I think she’s missing an opportunity here! The same Broadway snitch says the role of Britney hasn’t been filled yet! And if Bernadette Peters, Patti Lupone, and Bette Middler can’t do it, who better to play Britney than Britney?!
