Becoming Britney

Becoming Britney is a caustic (but loving) PG-rated fable that chronicles the rise, the dip, and the salvation of a foolhardy celebrity phenom. Part parody, part homage, this high-octane award-winning musical manages to elevate itself above standard musical satire and pop culture snark to add a layer of heart.

Becoming Britney, which was honored at the prestigious New York International Fringe Festival, features 14 original songs that pay homage to multiple musical theatre genres; they include a comical waltz between Britney and K-Fed as they both agree the other is, “The Love of My Life (So Far),” a show-stopper called “Push It Out” in which Brit has two babies, and “Out of Control,” a swingin’ jive number about her downward spiral with the help of friends Lindsay and Paris.

The show features New York International Fringe Festival Award-winning actress Molly Bell* in the title role; Keith Pinto*, Adam Barry*, and Lizzie O’Hara (all Retro Dome favorites); and newcomers, Leanne Borghesi* and Danelle Medeiros.

Book, Music and Lyrics are by Molly Bell & Daya Curley, who also directs. Produced by Scott, Shannon and Stephen Guggenheim of Guggenheim Entertainment, Inc.

Becoming Britney opens Friday, February 10 and closes Sunday, March 11. Shows will run Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets are available atwww.theretrodome.com.

Daya Curley, the show’s director and co-writer, is transgendered and proud of it. Several members of the cast are members of the LGBTQ community as well.



WHAT:        How does a pop sensation wind up bald and trapped in her own musical? And can musicals save her soul? This fun-loving, award-winning musical is part parody, part homage to Britney’s circus-like career, without being condescending or judgmental. Audiences are sure to have a blast on this joyous, trailer trash-loving journey toward Becoming Britney.
