Well I read the comments prior to seeing it last night, first up, I'm no fan of the group so my expectation wasn't set as they say but there for sure didn't lighten my mood beforehand.

It is akin to Mamma Mia, not unexpectedly as it is co-written by Judy Craymer in concept and for me, I enjoyed the performance, there is nothing to dislike at all, I though there were good performances from those playing Lauren (Sally Ann played Donna for 12 months in Mamma Mia of course and now playing another musical mum!), Simone, Minty and of course Viva who played the star role!

There is a lot of comical lines and moments in it to savour, finishing with an all cast song and dance. The reviews to my mind are a little off, it is a musical to enjoy, there really is nothing to dislike. It is light hearted for sure but it does not deserve the panning that people have written in my view.The Stalls were packed out and at the end everyone was up for the final numbers, that says it all, they obviously enjoyed it!

If in doubt go and see it and then judge the whole.

Judy Cramer on The Spice Girls Story has to be one of the worst botox/face lift jobs in theatre. She looks ridiculous

You're out of order. That's personal
She's produced Mamamia  brilliantly
What have you done?

Bang out of order in my opinion. thought Judy was brilliant in Mamma Mia and whilst I'm sure she does not want to get typecast, see puts in another top notch perfromance as Viva's mum.

Youre thinking of Sally Ann Triplett.

I'm afraid once someone's had 'work' done, comments on their looks are fair game, no matter what else they've done. It's not personal, it's just the way it is.

Do people have legs removed for cosmetic reasons?
