Viva Forever! The Spice Girls Musical Premieres in London

"That's why we're the Spice Girls" said Gerri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell at the premiere of Viva Forever, the Spice Girls musical in London. All five ladies attended the show, and were on stage alongside the cast for the final curtain call at London's Picadilly Theater. The musical, which takes the songs of the legendary 90s girl group into the present, a world with TV talent shows and Twitter is all about Girl Power and Mother-Daughter bonding. Written by comedian Jennifer Saunders and produced by Judy Craymer, who was also behind the Mamma Mia musical mega-hit, the show was not a tribute to the story of the Spice Girls, and the "story of now" it offered audiences was largely panned by critics. Although the cast of the show received praise, the script was deemed unfunny and the premise banal. This did not stop Mel B, also known as Scary Spice from saying "it was...great" adding a colourful expletive in-between, nor did it stop the audience from a standing ovation. viva forever News of the Spice Girls are seldom without reports of Victoria Beckham's chilly behavior. In true Ice Queen fashion, Posh Spice did not arrive with her four band mates to the red carpet, however she was present during the curtain call, wearing a demure blazer and trousers ensemble in dark contrast to the rest of the girly dresses. Once the show ended and the afterparty began, Beckham was once again nowhere to be seen, having left immediately after the show with husband David Beckham and children Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz. spice-viva-party Looking at the four girls dancing the night away in their party dresses, it seems that they are not the least bit bothered by Posh's absence. It also looks like the girls are still the best of friends, with Girl Power radiating off of them in waves. Still, one can't help but wonder what is going through their minds, and if they are hurt by Beckham's behavior when the world isn't watching.
