Musical With Spice Girls Music? Really?

Eve Barlow addresses my worries about “Viva Forever“: ‘The idea of a musical in the vein of “Mamma Mia!” or “We Will Rock You” built around the Spice back catalogue is as senseless as Take That’s “Never Forget” (which most people have). Whereas you’re never far from Abba or Queen on Magic FM, you don’t hear Spice Girls songs in the background of [TV’s] “EastEnders”…They don’t have that universal legacy. When the Spice Girls themselves are out of sight, they are out of mind. The music needs them present to have any meaning.’
