Producer Judy Craymer has confirmed that The New Spice Girls musical Viva Forever! is to close early at the end of June after just six months in London’s West End.
Judy Craymer said: “The show has evolved since we first opened and is now brighter, lighter and funnier, but despite the wonderful audiences and extremely positive feedback we just can’t make it work.
“I’m so proud of everyone involved in this production. Viva Forever! may be taking its leave for now in the West End but the legacy of Spice Girls will never fade.”
VIVA FOREVER! has exploded on to the stage at London’s Piccadilly Theatre and is wowing audiences with its clever mix of classic SPICE GIRLS hits combined with JENNIFER SAUNDERS’ irresistibly funny story.
Bringing some much needed spice to the West End, the show charts the journey of a girl and the people around her she loves, as she’s propelled into the superficial world of ‘Starmaker’, a TV talent show that offers the fame and fortune she thinks she craves. But life in the spotlight isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be, for the contestants, their families or even those who have the deciding votes!
Including the hit songs Stop, Say You’ll Be There, 2 Become 1 and many more, VIVA FOREVER! hits all the high notes for a fabulous feel-good night out. So spice up your life with this exhilarating new musical that celebrates love, friendship and just being who you really, really wanna be…!
