THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO BRITNEY: New Musical Tells the Story of Jesus Through Spears’ Pop Songs

Britney Spears will meet the Bible in a new Broadway musical telling the story of Jesus Christ through the pop star’s songs.

The musical SPEARS: The Gospel According To Britney will be performed on Thursday in New York City.

The birth, life, death and resurrection of Christ will be described in the musical with the help of Britney hits such as Baby One More Time, Ooops! I Did It Again, Stronger and Crazy.

The musical merging the pop and religious icons was created by 23-year-old Patrick Blute, according to press materials for the upcoming show.

SPEARS made its debut in April 2012 at Columbia University where Patrick was an undergraduate student and received a favourable review in the Columbia Spectator.

‘Little can be done to deny the star power of SPEARS, which manages to tackle the marriage of Spears and Christ in a way that respects both deities and keeps the audience fully engaged and entertained,’ the review said.
