Viva Forever, the Spice Girls Musical
As one of the seminal pop groups of the 1990s, the Spice Girls brought us Wannabe, Spice Up Your Life and the phrase ‘Girl Power‘. They had two UK number one albums and nine UK number one singles before heading in different directions. Now the girls are back together for the first time since their brief reunion in 2008 to announce Viva Forever!, the new musical written by comedienne Jennifer Saunders (of Ab Fab fame) and based on songs performed by the girls.
The five girls, Geri Halliwell, Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm, got together this morning for the first time in four years to announce the musical produced by Judy Cramer, the mind behind the ABBA musical, Mamma Mia. Viva Forever! will follow the story of a girl named ‘Viva’ who appears on a reality TV competition and will feature eighteen Spice Girls songs in total.
We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to see this!
