Just before Britney Spears got her big break on “The All-New Mickey House Club” she had landed an understudy role in “Ruthless! The Musical”, which spoofs Broadway musicals like Gypsy and Mame. In a 2014 interview with the New York Post, the show’s book writer and lyricist Joel Paley talked about meeting Spears who stepped in as an understudy. He told the paper “We thought, ‘We’re never going to find another [girl] — we’re really screwed. And that’s when we found Britney Spears.”

Of course, when the Mickey Mouse club came a calling eight months later she could not turn it down, and off she went to Florida to become a Mouseketeer, and actress Natalie Portman stepped in to fill Britney’s shoes.
