Spice Girls: The Musical?

Well this is certainly an interesting story: it seems that a Spice Girls musical is imminent. I'm not really sure what to make of this to be honest.

On the one hand, I'm not really very keen on their music (aside from in a 90s nostalgia kind of way) and musicals based on pop group's songs tend not to be the most sophisticated of artistic endeavours - musical theatre has much more to offer as an art form than a plot tenuously linking together a selection of hits. On the other hand, Jennifer Saunders is very funny, and therefore this could be too.

We'll just have to wait and see how it turns out I guess, but I'm sceptical. At least it adds a slightly different twist to the band reunions which have been happening so often lately.
