Spice Girls musical must be a good news for Spice Girls fans. After many years fans did not hear any news about their favorite girl band, Spice Girls now come back for another project, Spice Girls Musical. According to the news that I read on the internet, Spice Girls musical shall play life resonances for many aspect of Spice Girls early life.
For those who do not know it, Spice Girls are a British pop girl group formed in 1994. The legendary female group personnel comprised Geri Halliwell “Ginger Spice”, Melanie Brown “Scary Spice”, Victoria Beckham “Posh Spice”, Emma Bunton “Baby Spice”, and most memorable Melanie Chisholm “Sporty Spice”. First of all, they were signed to Virgin Records and during their service with the records, they released their debut single, “Wannabe” in 1996. “Wannabe” became hit number-one in more than 30 countries and helped establish the Spice Girls group as a “global phenomenon”, thus it is the basis for Spice Girls Musical.
According to the news, Producers of Spice Girls musical has stressed many times that even though the show was about Spice Girls, Spice Girls musical shall not be a biography of the band, but there are plenty of real-life resonances for the 1990s group in its relation with female empowerment and good friendship that tested and trialled by fame and money that come along with it.
Spice Girls musical, that is now dubbed as “Viva Forever” shall start opens previews on Nov. 27 and opens Dec. 11 at London’s Piccadilly Theatre. Basically Spice Girls Musical of “Viva Forever” tells the story of four friends whose their friendship bond becomes strained when their band enters a TV talent show. Seems like a good story plot for me. It shall shows classic female friends and mother-daughter relationships that is already a success pattern for many shows before this.
