The world premiere of a musical set to the songs of Britney Spears, which was to take place in Chicago next month, is now canceled, another casualty of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Once Upon a One More Time,” a fairy tale musical starring Briga Heelan (of TV’s “Great News”), “American Idol” singer Justin Guarini and “Four Weddings and a Funeral” actor Simon Callow, had been scheduled to play the James M. Nederlander Theatre on the way to Broadway.

Refunds for ticket holders are available at the point of purchase.
