Simon Fuller announces Spice Girls musical

Friday January 22, 2010

Though the Spice Girls officially broke up after their 2008 reunion tour, it seems their songs will be returning to the live stage, this time in London's West End. 

Posh, Ginger, Scary, Baby and Sporty will be played by actresses in the musical, tentatively called Viva Forever.

The show, which is set to debut on November 5, will tell the story of the girls' rise to fame through 14 of their biggest hits.

They are developing the show with Simon Fuller, who managed them in the 90s, and Judy Cramer, producer of stage hit Mamma Mia!.

Simon says the Spice Girls are "very excited" about the project.

"What they created with their powerful record-breaking mix of girl power and hit songs, has influenced pop culture more than anyone can imagine," he added.
