So far, everything we've heard about the Spice Girls musical is phenom!
The Absolutely Fabulous Jennifer Saunders will be involved in the writing of it Mamma Mia! producer Judy Cramer will call the shots as executive producer and several of the Girls themselves have expressed real thrill on the progress Viva Forever is making.
But we're dying to know more! We're craving to know more! So we did some digging…
We learned that the show now has a director, according to Cramer herself - Marianne Alliot. Of their selection, Cramer said:
"With her theatrical aptitude for exploring strong women and their relationships and her meticulousness to detail she is absolutely the right person to direct this new musical which is all about female friendship, celebrity and fame. I'm so happy to have her on board, together with Jennifer Saunders, who has written the musical."
Good, good. We like the sound of all that. Okay, what else you got? How about something more along the lines of the plot of the show? Got anything like that?!
Yes! She does! She adds:
"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."
Okay, well. It's not much … but it's a start! Kind of a Mamma Mia route. Inneresting.
Who's ready for more GIRL POWER?!
