Britney Spears' Music To Tell the Story of Jesus in New Musical
According to the musical's website, the show will chronicle the life, death and resurrection of Jesus using Britney's hits like "Stronger," "One More Time," "Lucky" and "Crazy."
Spears was developed by Patrick Blute, a 23-year-old Columbia University graduate, who debuted the show in April 2012 at the college to a sold-out crowd.
"These are Britney's lyrics. These are Jesus Christ's images. The Britney Spears you see is not Britney Spears. Remember that," Blute writes on the show's website. "The Jesus Christ you read is not Jesus Christ. These are manifestations. Accounts through the media, through the words of followers, of friends, of foes, of villains, of heroes, of liars, of biases."
He adds, "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." more on this story
