‘Viva Forever’ Together Again!

The Spice Girls will be reunited today for the launch of ‘Viva Forever’ – a musical inspired by them!

I am absolutely buzzing about this news and it feels like it has been a long time coming… I mean with songs like ‘2 Become 1″, “Mama” and of course “Spice Up Your Life” their back catalogue creates lots of opportunity for some musical magicianry.

This production is the brainchild of Judy Craymer – the creator of ‘Mamma Mia the Musical’ – so it should be similarly fabulous! The most exciting thing about the musical is that the script has been written by comedian Jennifer Saunders so I’m sure the Ab Fab writer will have worked her magic and created some hugely funny one-liners.

As a child the Spice Girls were my ultimate idols! Each year my allegiance would switch between either Sporty or Scary and my style was greatly influenced by platforms, crop tops, Afros and belly button tattoos (transfers obv). Because I was only five at the time this did slightly worry my parents… During nursery I was Scary Spice for my local talent contest (the youngest person on stage but hell that didn’t stop me) and funnily enough this experience marked the beginning of my absolute love for theatre. We didn’t win but who can compete with the guy who plays the drums with a broken arm? Slightly unfair advantage I would say.

ImageThe Spice Girls played a huge role in moulding me into the lass I am today 🙂 You know a total crazy show off… (jokes) So I am really chuffed that ‘Viva Forever’ has come about because the girl group really deserve more recognition for their feminist, fun and funky music. And let’s be honest they were a lot more inspirational than ABBA that’s for sure! Girl Power lives on.

    I even used to collect Chupa Chups Spice Girls stickers that came with the lollipops. Never got to see them 😦
