Absolutely loved it! You have to like the Spice Girls music and musicals in general though. I understand that some parts had been rewritten due to poor reviews. If that's right, they have done a good job and fixed it as far as I am concerned. Storylines for musical are always a bit cheesy - so you have to accept that. We go for the music, not the intellectual property! And Jennifer Saunders humour came through, as expected. Theatre was full and everyone was up singing and dancing. Brought laughter and tears to my eyes. Terrific night out. Spice Girls fans should not miss it!!
Went with a group of friends, we had high expectations as we all love Jennifer Saunders and her witty material, but this show is ABSOLUTELY RUBBISH, I was appalled at the dreadful acting, it was like watching a local Am Dram group in the village hall, the singing was OK, the storyline was weak, it was a total waste of money. The fact the theatre was almost empty says it all, don't think this will be on for very much longer.
Don't waste your money, if you want to see a great show there are plenty more out there, just not this one
There were ten of us who went to see the show last night...
It was FAB!
After hearing poor reviews I went with an open mind and wasn't disappointed... Laughed, cried and the cast were fantastic...
It was good to see them laughing at their own script which had the audience in ruptures of laughter....
All up on our feet at the end and boogied on into the night on a high...
Please go and see, make up your own mind....
Would definitely see it again...
Was so looking forward to a night of camp kitsch fun but this misses by a mile. I was embarrassed by it. Completely lame and boring, rubbish storyline and poor jokes. Wasn't expecting high-brow but was expecting more from a Saunders script. The whole thing felt like a year 10 production. A complete load of poo. Some people walked out throughout, and at the end I could hear loads of people saying how s**t it was. Very, very poor :o(
Arrived at the theatre with mixed feelings after reading the previous reviews but I needn't have worried because the show was really good. Plenty of laughs, good singing and a very energetic cast. Yes the script is very cheesy and there were some obvious delays between the dialogue and the music starting for another "spontaneous " song but overall the show was good. The person who slated the show in an earlier review must not have been following the plot because it was very clearly stated why Viva went to Spain. She went to Simone's house for mentor coaching. Keep up! I would recommend this show for any age.
very poor story line paid top price for tickets very dissapointed.
The cast can sing and dance far better than any of the Spice Girls but quite frankly the story line was as boring as boring can be ! Rather surprising as Jennifer Saunders wrote it. None of her fantasic humour ..... Sadly extremely bland. The cast did their best with what they had to work with but I wished I stayed at home ( several people left during the interval and I overheard several people stating their disappointment at the end . Lots more songs could have been used too . Doubt it will very well long term . Very disappointing
Huge let down.
I had a couple of drinks before the show and that saves it from me giving it a score of 1. The singing was OK, nothing special. Ironically the singing was on a level of some of the wannabes on X Factor, though I'm sure they didn't intend to give that impression. The 2 become 1 parody was good - why couldn't there have been more gags like that? The first half I agree was extremely dull. And then we fast forward and Viva is living in Spain? Did I miss something there? Huge gaps in the storyline the whole way through - it's hard to warm to any of the characters and even I didn't recognise some of the album tracks (I would consider myself a big Spice Girls fan). I've seen Mamma Mia and would say it's possibly the best musical I've ever seen. This sadly is the worst. I hope the Spice Girls get together for one last reunion tour - that would be mega. I'd advise people to wait for that before paying money to see this drivel.
After reading several negative reviews went along with my husband and daughter on Friday 1st march and was pleasantly surprised.we saw the spice girls live in December 1999 when Fran was aged seven so were all familiar with the songs! Just have some fun and a singalong and don't take it too seriouslyit's not Shakespeare! Some of the actors had great comedy timing and we had a great night!
This is a fantastic feel good show! The acting is superb and carried the audience along to the end of the high energy finale. It is a modern tale of the importance of friends and family and the insincerity of instant stardom, via a well known Saturday night talent show and media manipulation. Maybe that is why it didn't get such rave reviews?
I loved it and so did my 79 year old mother neither of us Spice Girls fans, but definitely would recommend for excellent entertainment.
