Sporty, Ginger, Posh, Scary, Baby and…Musical? It’s true: A Spice Girls musical is in the works from Mamma Mia! producer Julie Craymer and Simon Fuller. Tentatively titled Viva Forever, the musical “will be a mix of fact and fiction, a story of women and friendship,” Craymer told Variety. Zig-a-zig-aaamazing!
While no band could ever take ABBA’s place in my heart, the Spice Girls make complete sense as the next pop musical — talk about a consistent sound and style. I’m hopeful that Viva Forever will be schmaltzy and vaguely idiotic — and totally silly and fun. It will go great with white wine spritzers, and I will love the crap out of it, because what am I, made of stone? Girl power!!!!!
Okay, PopWatchers, will you let Viva Forever spice up your life?
