Max Martin Musical In the Works
Max Martin has written 22 US number one singles including these Britney songs... “Baby One More Time” , “Cinderella”, “3”, “Criminal”, “I Will Be There”, “Inside Out”, “If You Seek Amy”, “I’m Not a Girl Not Yet a Woman”, “Oops! I Did it Again” and “Overprotected” to name just a few.
He’s also written for Taylor Swift and the Backstreet Boys.
Now the famous producer and songwriter is getting his own musical! The show will debut in the UK with many of his famous songs included.
A casting notice for the new musical says those songs are the "inspiration" for the show, which will premiere next year.
The casting notice calls for "exceptional pop singers" in their 20s and 30s who can "act and dance to a high standard"; as well as dancers skilled in hip-hop, breakdancing and street dance.
The musical is being created by Martin, with orchestration and arrangements by Bill Sherman, who previously worked on Lin-Manuel Miranda's pre-Hamilton show In The Heights. (Which Britney saw and then met Miranda in New York in her documentary “For the Record”. )
So far “Baby” will be the only Britney song included in the show.
Britney praised Max in a 2016 documentary about the songwriter saying “he’s very talented”.
The musical will enter a workshop phase next year, and will premiere outside London before transferring to the West End.
