Are you a Spice Girls fan who longs to see their hit songs brought to life onstage, and you’re willing to pay around eighty bucks for the experience? Then we have some good news! Theater producer Judy Craymer, the mastermind behind the stage and film versions of Mamma Mia!, has struck a deal with Spice Girls creator Simon Fuller in order to create a musical based on the group’s pop songs.
The Spice Girls themselves will likely have nothing to do with the show and there won’t actually be characters based on them (although that would be kind of awesome: a dramatic reenactment of the day Posh met Becks? Yes, please.) Instead, like Mamma Mia!, the show will use the group’s songs to tell a fictional story. Boy meets girl, boy wants to be girl’s lover, boy has to get with girl’s friends, and eventually two become one. Tentatively titled “Viva Forever”, the show will take two to three years before debuting. Until then, we’ll be sending Judy Craymer notes with our ideas on how best to portray the elusive “Zig-ah-zig-ahh” onstage. [Photo: Getty Images]
