|Spice Girls Musical|
Written by British comedienne Jennifer Saunders and backed by "Mamma Mia!" producer Judy Craymer, "Viva Forever" will prominently feature the sounds of the Spice Girls, one of the biggest and most influential groups of the nineties.
The makers of the musical said that girl group's global hit songs "tell a vibrant story about identity, friendship and the quest for fame taking the ethos of girl power and applying it to today's celebrity-obsessed culture."
Below is the plot of the upcoming Spice Girls musical:
"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."
Although Scary, Baby, Posh, Ginger, and Sporty Spice won't be performing on stage, the girls are in full support for the musical. They recently reunited for the launch of the musical and talked about how excited they are for the show. Check out a footage of the launch below:
The "Viva Forever" launch was held in London on Tuesday. The musical will open on November 27, 2012 at the Piccadilly Theatre in London.
