The Spice Girls’ musical Viva Forever will be saying goodbye to London’s West End in the next eight weeks! The show, featuring the girl group’s biggest hits, wasn’t good enough to make the cut and will be closing at a loss of close to $8 million! YIKES!
“We want to thank the cast and all the fans for their support, and although Viva Forever won't continue in the West End we are thrilled that the thousands of people who came to the show had as much fun as we did.”
Absolutely devastated our wonderful show is closing. Thank you to our brilliant cast and everybody who made the show so incredible.

The show's producer Judy Craymer also added:
“The show has evolved since we first opened and is now brighter, lighter and funnier, but despite the wonderful audiences and extremely positive feedback we just can’t make it work… I'm so proud of everyone involved in this production. Viva Forever! may be taking it’s leave for now in the West End but the legacy of Spice Girls will never fade.”
RIP Viva Forever! But don't you worry, ladies! We'll still Wannabe you!!
