The 12-year-olds inside all of us are bursting with excitement!
Details about the upcoming Spice Girls’ musical, Viva Forever, have been released, and it looks like an awesome project!
Viva Forever will be a musical about a reality TV show, and while it won’t feature any characters with the the same names as the Spice Girls, it will reflect their sensibilities and feature 14 of the group’s songs.
Producer Judy Craymer, who was behind the stage production of Mamma Mia!, explained the concept:
"We live in a world dominated by people wanting to be famous. What the Spice Girls did was before those shows became really what they are, and before the world become slightly obsessed by such shows. Viva Forever will encompass the Spice Girls ethos of friendship, identity and being true to yourself, it won't be a tribute or bio show, nor will it feature characters with any of the names of the famous five piece."
Judy Craymer added: "It has a glimpse of the underbelly of TV talent shows, an invented show, and a little bit of comedy romance."
All five Spice Girls met at the end of last year to discuss the project. "All five of us are really super excited. We don't do anything unless all five agree,” said Mel B. “All of us loved Mamma Mia!. We needed someone who would have a great vision alongside ours."
The book will be written by Ab Fab star Jennifer Saunders, so we KNOW it'll be amazing.
