The Spice Girls are are back at it and this time will showcase their hit songs in a group musical! Viva Forever! is scheduled to debut in mid-December at London’s Piccadilly Theatre, where Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm and Victoria Beckham will come together once again.
According to the show’s website, award-winning writer Jennifer Saunder’s and Judy Craymer will produce the contemporary musical based on the importance of friendship in a world of fortune and fame.
“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.”
This is the first time the girls have reunited on a project since their 2008 world tour, which sold-out in a matter of minutes. This musical is sure to have the same popularity amongst 90’s girl-band fanatics. The project first received attention back in February, when Mel B ( Melanie Brown) tweeted about joining up in the U.K with her group-members.
