'Spice Up Your Life' with this new musical
The West End is about to get spicy.
From 27 November, Viva Forever!, the brand new musical inspired by and featuring the deliciously catchy music of the Spice Girls, will be bringing fans of the iconic 90s band "what you want, what you really really want."
Award-winning writer and comedienne Jennifer Saunders has teamed up with Mamma Mia producer Judy Craymer to create this new musical that tells a story of female friendship, fame, family, and bonds that last through thick and thin. But don't expect to get the inside scoop on Ginger, Posh, Sporty, Scary, and Baby during the show-- Viva Forever!, although stacked with the Spice Girls' biggest hits, is an original musical with fictional characters and a story created specifically for the musical theatre stage.
With a high-profile production team and music that is both a nostalgic blast from the past and a perfect fit for a pop musical, Viva Forever! sounds like a gigantic hit in the making. I'd recommend making your way to the Piccadilly Theatre sooner rather than later-- maybe try for standing room if you're looking for a cheap way to go-- so you can say 'I was one of the first' before it becomes an overnight classic.
Tickets range from £15 (standing room only tickets, only available for sold out performances) all the way to £95, with many options in-between. For full information on ticket booking and prices, check out the Viva Forever! websitehere.
Time for Rock of Ages, We Will Rock You, Mamma Mia, and Jersey Boys to "Move Over", because Girl Power will soon reign on the West End. I know I'm excited, will you "Say You'll Be There"?
