I read last night that a London producer has staged a ballet about  
Britney Spears entitled "Meltdown."  Apparently, the musical composer  
for the production also scored the music for a Jerry Springer opera.   
You can read the full article (at your own risk) at http://uk.reuters.com/article/entertainmentNews/idUKL0167347020080201 

One of my friends suggested that the producer's next project should be  
a musical of Britney Spears called "Shake Spears."  I couldn't help  
but to laugh.
