Been to the matinee today with low hopes after seeing these reviews. However the spice girls were my era so I loved hearing a lot of the songs. I can see what some people are on about though it is a bit of a mush mash and a bit confusing. I thought the girl playing Luce had the strongest voice out of all 4 girls. I really wanted to like this show and at times I felt there was potential for it to be brilliant but then it just kind of flopped. The ending needs a bit of work to make it more final. I can't see this lasting long which is a shame for the cast but the story is just too thin

It's a big white elephant of a show. No matter what tweaks are made, it's got too bad a reputation now to last. Even people I know who are kind to even terrible shows agree there's not one single positive aspect to this show. Except the interval,

There is some redeeming qualities. Its got a talented cast, staging is quite good and some of the dance numbers are brilliant

It's a shame Sally Dexter didn't get an Olivier nomination. I don't think the panel should put her down just because they don't like the show. She does a phenomenal job.
