Went to see this last night, and oh dear... I have no words to describe how bad this was!!!!
The opening is just FLAT... there's no other way to say it.. instead of using a big song to set the mood, it's just boring dialogue.The ''story'' was all over the place, the songs all cut .. half of them you wouldn't recognize.. and the other half were completely ruined (Say you'll be there, one of my favorites, just a couple of verses and then cut by nonsense dialogue)....
What is the deal with ''Spice up your life''??????????? With all the spanish dancers, and then in the middle a dance which looked like it came out of the lion king... oh dear.. just horrible!!!!!!!!!!
The book is not funny, the costume is nothing to get too excited about.. I still don't understand why Viva's Mentor (sorry i don't remember her name!) had so many songs while the girls barely appear after the first scenes... and WHY she comes in at the end of the first act when viva and her mum are singing goodbye/mama ???? What does she have to do with anything??? At first I thought (as someone said before) that she would end up being Viva's birth mother, but this didn't happen.. so I don't see an explanation for her being so important in the story.
Overall I was bored 90% of the time, the only exciting moment was the last 5 minutes of the show when the cast was dancing spice up your life/wannabe/stop.. Now that is how the whole show should have been!!! Fun and silly.. in a mamma mia or priscilla sort of way....
Disappointed! Not going to watch this again! Feeling bad for all the performers working in it, as I'm sure they have to know how horrible this show is..
