Jennifer Simard and Adam Godley Join ONCE UPON A ONE MORE TIME on Broadway
How wicked! Jennifer Simard has joined the Broadway cast of Once Upon a One More Time as the Stepmother. In addition, Adam Godley will play The Narrator. Both stars were 2022 Tony nominees for their performances in Company and The Lehman Trilogy, respectively.
As previously announced, the cast features Briga Heelan as Cinderella, Justin Guarini as Prince Charming, and Aisha Jackson as Snow White. They reprise their roles from the Washington, D.C. out-of-town tryout in 2021. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
The musical follows a group of famous fairy-tale princesses as they search for a new narrative that embodies the feminist ideals of today. Among the well-known figures are Cinderella (along with new takes on the stepmother, stepsisters, and fairy godmother), Prince Charming, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, and Little Red Riding Hood, with several new characters as well.
Using songs like “Lucky,” “Toxic,” “Oops… I Did It Again,” and more, the show features an original story written by Jon Hartmere, set to songs made popular by the Princess of Pop herself.
Once Upon a One More Time is directed and choreographed by Keone and Mari Madrid. The Broadway creative team will include creative consultant David Leveaux, scenic designer Anna Fleischle, lighting designer Kenneth Posner, sound designer Andrew Keister, production designer Sven Ortel, costume designer Loren Elstein, and wig designer Nikiya Mathis. Casting is by Hardt Casting.
The musical had a world premiere that opened in at the Shakespeare Theatre Company, starring Emily Skinner, Brooke Dillman, Ashley Chiu, Raymond J. Lee, Wonu Ogunfowora, Ryan Steele, Morgan Weed, Lauren Zakrin, Stephen Brower, and Michael McGrath. More casting for the Broadway premiere will be announced later.
