If you “wanna be” able to see the Spice Girls inspired musical live on stage, you better hurry over to London's Piccadilly Theatre. Viva Forever! announced it will play its final performance on June 29. The big budget West End musical opened earlier this season on December 11, 2012. The show features a book by Jennifer Saunders (Absolutely Fabulous), music by the Spice Girls and direction by Paul Garrington.
Set in London and Spain, Viva Forever! is the story of a beautiful, talented girl named Viva who gets caught up in the obsession of celebrity TV culture. When she follows her singing dream, she discovers the impact her newfound fame has on her relationships with her mother and friends. The musical features 16 songs from the ’90s girl group, including “Say You’ll Be There,” “Wannabe” and “The Lady Is a Vamp.”
