From Justin to Britney: Justin Guarini to play Prince Charming in "Once Upon a One More Time."
The Britney Spears-inspired musical Once Upon a One More Time has found its Prince Charming: American Idol alum Justin Guarini, who was the season 1 runner-up to the show's inaugural winner, Kelly Clarkson.
The Broadway-bound jukebox musical announced its cast on Wednesday (March 4), as Guarini joins the fantasy ranks of Cinderella, Snow White and other fairytale characters the story follows. When a rogue fairy godmother delivers Betty Friedan's classic feminist manifesto The Feminist Mystique to their book club, the princesses question the purpose of their happily-ever-afters.
Following his 2002 Idol stint, Guarini has five Broadway roles under his belt: Wicked, American Idiot, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Romeo and Juliet and, most recently, In Transit in 2017.
