New Review: Becoming Britney

For Back Stage, as part of the New York International Fringe Festival.

Here's the tease:

....the show's authors don't know what they want Becoming Britney to become. In one scene Spears is told she has to sing a song about what she wants because musicals require it — and that sends a metatheatrical red flag that comes out of nowhere and goes nowhere. Curley's direction is solid, but the choreography — by Mandy Bell, Lisa Navarro, and Bell — is overdone. And either we should sympathize with Spears or not, but not both. Why undercut such a dippy enterprise?
