    Default Britney Spears in talks to make Broadway musical

    Britney might be coming to Broadway.

    As the “Princess of Pop” prepares to close her popular residency show in Las Vegas, her manager, Larry Rudolph, has started to explore bringing her chart-topping songs to Broadway. He met with theatre veteran Jerry Mitchell to discuss turning her music catalog into a full-fledged theatrical production.

    As the director of On Your Feet!, Mitchell helped Gloria and Emilio Estefan translate their uplifting life story to the stage. “We’re telling a true story about real people, so the authenticity is really important to me,” he stressed in an interview before the show arrived on Broadway.

    However, Mitchell does not plan to use the same recipe when making a jukebox musical with Spears. “It would NOT be autobiographical,” he confirmed. Instead, all of her famous songs would be used to tie together a fictional narrative, like Mamma Mia!.

    Rudolph and Mitchell are still mulling over the idea, and no timeline has been announced.
