In case you missed the ridiculously amazing comeback tour by the Spice Girls, there’s another way to get your Baby, Ginger, Sporty, Posh, and Scary spice fix. Get ready for this one¦there’s going to be¦a Spice Girls musical.
The 1990s super girl group announced earlier in the year that there’s going to be a musical, called Viva Forever, inspired by their music “ but not much has come to fruition just yet. The reason? The girls are busy bees, so it’s taken a while to get the musical show perfected.
The original opening date was slated for summer 2011 “ but seeing as that’s almost over “ it has obviously been pushed back. The show is now set to hit West London stages in December of this year or early 2012.
We were planning to open around summer time but it’s likely going to be a Christmas show now. We’ve put it back to make sure it’s right, said Melanie Chisolm, aka Sporty Spice.
Viva Forever is a musical inspired by the music of the Spice Girls, but it’s not going to be a bio or tribute or anything like that. Although the band members are hard at work perfecting the show, don’t expect to see them appearing on stage either.
The script is funny and emotional. But there won’t be any cameos from us, said Chisolm.
Absolutely Fabulous star, Jennifer Saunders, is in charge of writing the script for this highly-anticipated show. In addition, Viva Forever is being produced by the team behind the hit musical show, Mamma Mia! All in all, there’s a fabulous team behind this upcoming musical, and I can hardly contain my excitement. It just might be the perfect excuse to fly over the pond for a vacation!
As far as any other exact details go, there aren’t very many to release. Emma Bunton, aka Baby Spice had this to say about the show: It’s going to be amazing. I’ve heard a little bit about the story but it’s top secret. We’ve been in touch with the producer and the writer.
I know¦I want more details too!
Are you excited about Viva Forever?
