New Gospel Story Uses Britney Spears Music

Posted: Updated:

A new musical is headed for the Big Apple. It's about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and it's set to Britney Spears music.

It's called "Spears: The Gospel According To Britney," and it'll show for one night only, this Thursday, November seventh at the Foxwoods Theater.

The show's producer, Patrick Blute, says that it "reconciles a lot of the anxiety 20-somethings feel about living in a society that has thousands of statements and not much substance."

He also says that it tells the story using fragments of pop culture in a non-offensive way.

"These are manifestations. Accounts through the media, through the words of followers, of friends, of foes, of villains, of heroes, of liars, of biases. It's a falsehood that people believe fame and fortune create happiness. That all ‘deaths' receive a resurrection. I hope this project will show you otherwise through the power of listening and the power of forgiveness."

The production already reportedly played to a packed house back in April at Columbia University, Blute's alma mater.
