Britney Spears: The Musical

Luckiest Productions

 

Starring Christie Whelan
Written & Directed by Dean Bryant
Musical Arrangements by Mathew Frank
 
Not so much a cabaret show as a cry for help, Britney Spears: The Cabaret has had acclaimed seasons in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival.
Hilariously funny and strangely touching, Britney Spears: The Cabaret is a satirical look at the perils of fame by award-winning writer/director Dean Bryant. The musical direction of Mathew Frank sees Britney’s hits transformed into cabaret songs, and seamlessly intertwined into the fabric of her life story.

 
Christie Whelan recently wowed critics and audiences in the lead role of Xanadu: The Musical in Melbourne. She has received critical praise and awards for her roles in shows including Company and The Drowsy Chaperone, and at the end of 2011 will star in The Importance Of Being Earnest at the MTC – with Geoffrey Rush as her mother.
Dean Bryant and Mathew Frank have co-written several award-winning musicals, and have worked extensively together as director and musical director, most recently on Next To Normal at the MTC.
