If you were looking forward to seeing the Spice Girls’ musical “Viva Forever!” at the Piccadilly Theatre in London, you only have until June 29 to “Say You’ll Be There.”
The show’s producer Judy Craymer confirmed the news this week that the musical (which features Spice Girls tunes like “Wannabe,” “Spice Up Your Life,” “2 Become 1” and more) will close after six short months on stage.
"It is with a heavy heart that we've had to make this very difficult decision to post closing notices for this original show which is blessed with one of the most brilliant casts currently on the West End stage,” Craymer said in a statement.
She also 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.”
The Spice Girls added their own statement: "We want to thank the cast and all the fans for their support, and although Viva Forever won't continue in the West End we are thrilled that the thousands of people who came to the show had as much fun as we did."
