David Shopland and Shereen Roushbaiani's Saving Britney begins its run July 6 at Off-Broadway's SoHo Playhouse, transferring from London's Old Red Lion Theatre. The show will continue through July 30.
The solo show is inspired by the #FreeBritney movement and follows millennial Jean and her journey of self-discovery through her love of Britney Spears. The nostalgia-filled play tackles celebrity obsession and sexuality.
Saving Britney features performances by Shereen Roushbaiani, a script by Shopland and Roushbaiani, and direction by David Shopland. It is produced by Fake Escape.
Gimme more! Additional works inspired by the Princess of Pop include the jukebox musical Once Upon a One More Time, which had its world premiere in D.C. last year, and the Broadway-bound & Juliet, which began its North American premiere June 22 at Toronto’s Princess of Wales Theatre (following its West End bow) and features multiple songs by Spears, including "...Baby One More Time," "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet A Woman," "Stronger," and more.
