Absolutely fantastic news!
Judy Craymer's Spice Girls musical, Viva Forever, which is still currently in development, just got a whole lot more amazing with the news that Absolutely Fabulous' Jennifer Saunders will be writing the piece's original story!
"Having Jennifer Saunders on board is the best possible start VIVA FOREVER can have. We are creating a new contemporary story about friendship, celebrity and fame with the music of the Spice Girls. Jennifer is brilliant at writing about these themes and the Spice Girls' songs connect powerfully in a smart and moving way."
"I'm thrilled and terrified at the same time. It is very exciting to be writing a musical that encompasses the music and energy of the biggest girl-band of all time. My daughters grew up with The Spice Girls; I had to write the book for them as well as myself. It has been great fun so far."
The story will allegedly focus on love, loyalty, and camaraderie, and will incorporate the music of the girl group through out!
This is a winning combination of AMAZING!
Spice Girls musical NOW, please!
