Apparently there has been a 220% increase in ticket sales since they announced their closure, which means that by my calculations, they can expect at least 2.2 audience members at their last show!

With the 2.2 people being some of the Spice Girls, of course

I wouldn't count on it - only Posh and Baby will be living in the UK by the end of the month, and neither have seen it after the premiere. Yes, I'm in AA for my spice fandom :P
If I stay awake, it must be good.

Emma Bunton has been to see it more than once since its premiere, including the night I paid my second (comped) visit.

Oh my apologies, I guess that means they can be confident at least 2.2 people have searched for tickets then! :P

Well you wouldn't have to "search" very hard for the deals!

I do wish an actual MUSICAL THEATRE piece had been constructed here. I enjoyed the show, laughed somewhat and reminisced about Spice Girls songs from being a young boy... but there was so much potential to arrange the songs to be much broader theatrical numbers. It does play like an Ab Fab episode rather than a well thought out plot that tells a whole story with arcs!
