The Spice Girls are back in action, y’all!
GUYS!!! IT’S HAPPENING!! The Spice Girls are getting back together! Well, kind of, but at this point we’ll totally take what we can get — which just so happens to be a musical. Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, and Victoria Beckham, otherwise known as the Spice Girls, otherwise known as the women who kept the ’90s in sequined hot pants, have joined forces to launch a new musical called “Viva Forever!”
Read about the Spice Girls’ “Viva Forever!” musical after the jump.
The show will include songs from the Spice Girls’ catalog (i.e. masterpieces like “Wannabe” and “Say You’ll Be There“) and follow the journey of a young girl who goes from obscurity to celebrity overnight…kinda like the Spice Girls! According to the show’s own description: “As one girl follows her dreams, Viva Forever! charts her journey into the world of overnight celebrity and its impact on her mother and the friends she thought she’d have forever. From London to Spain and back again, as the world judges you, it’s all about who you really are and who you want to be, whatever the cost.” A-MEN! As the Spice Girls always taught me: If you wanna walk around and say things like “zigazag ah” then you do it, and you do it proud.
“Viva Forever!” is set to open on Dec. 11 at London’s Piccadilly Theatre. I hear the U.K. is lovely around Christmas time guys, so WHO’S IN? (Zero part of me is joking right now, FYI.) SAY YOU’LL BE THERE!
