THE LIFE OF Jesus will be retold in a new musical that uses the songs of Britney Spears to narrate the story.

Called Spears, the musical has no dialogue except for Britney songs – whose lyrics have not been changed.

According to the press release:

The musical tugs at the heartstrings of America’s lost twenty-somethings, calling on familiar hits [...] to describe the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The Spears website showcases song lyrics with photos from the set, including:

Spears made its first appearance at Columbia University in New York last year. However, producers are now looking for a bigger stage.

They want to take it to Broadway – but have not yet secured the necessary copyright to Britney’s songs. So they’re staging a preview at a smaller theatre in the hope of attracting funding.
