Viva Forever, the Spice Girls musical, received its world premiere on 11 December 2012 at the Piccadilly Theatre. The Spice Girls are the most successful girl group of all time, having sold more than 75 million records worldwide with hits such including “Say You’ll Be There,” “Spice Up Your Life,” and “Who Do You Think You Are.” They catapulted into the charts with their debut single “Wannabe” in 1996, and their reunion tour in 2007 grossed more than $100 million. Judy Craymer, the producer behind the mega-hit Mamma Mia!, is the producer of Viva Forever. After successful using ABBA’s songs to tell an completely unique story, Viva Forever follows the same format with a script by Jennifer Saunders, most famous for her work on the hit sitcom Absolutely Fabulous. The plotline follows a young girl trying out for an X Factor-style reality show, and stays true to the Spice Girls theme of “girl power.”

  1. Excited for Viva Forever! Wondering if she finds a love interest during the competition, who is eliminated at a late stage and she sings Goodbye (or she is eliminated in the later stages, her love interest sings it to her, meanwhile, at home, the heroine sings Viva Forever, missing said love interest, but she is then re-instated because of a Frankie Cocozza style hoo-ha)! Possibly it will also feature a chauvinistic director who near-forces her to behave in a way she is uncomfortable with, she resists it (Do It) and wins the programme. Possibly vote-rigging? Maybe she sings Stop to said chauvinistic director, or to the media who, over the course of the competition, hound her? 2 Become 1: two acts would be wittled down to one, and by this point, she and love interest are mad for each other. Only my guesses, I *love* the Spice Girls, for the record! Also, please remember those with access requirements (e.g. BSL, touch tours)! Thanks! xx

  2. i am so excited about the musical i love the spice girls and always have been a fan since 1996, i have my tickets for dec 3rd :) <3 #girlpower

  3. We went to see Viva Forever! and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Jennifer Saunders has done a great job. I took my daughter and her friend (now 26) and we all really loved it. From what we could see everyone around us also enjoyed it. From two big Spice Girls fans they really thought it was good. I’d recommend it. Book up, see it and make your own mind up.
