Ok, we admit it. Sometimes, TVO is living in under a rock, inside a bubble, shrouded in secrecy and wrapped in cotton wool. And candy floss. And fog. And the emptiness of space. You get the picture.
Anyhow, occasionally, we completely miss something that’s staring us in the face – such as the casting of Lucy Montgomery in Viva Forever! – the new musical featuring the music of the Spice Girls.
Written by Jennifer Saunders, who worked with Lucy on Absolutely Fabulous back in 2011, the show has been polarising critics but audiences are lapping it up – in much the same way We Will Rock You and Mamma Mia have ended up being long running West End smashes.
Lucy plays fitness fanatic Suzi in the musical, which is on every night at London’s Piccadilly Theatre. For more info, visit the show’s official website, and we promise to try not to be so behind the times again in the future. All together now! Swing it, shake it, move it, make it, whooooo d’ya think y’aaaarrrrrrrrreeeeee!!!
