So I was going through Wikipedia, and somehow (I won’t say how – but I may have been searching for it) I ended up on the Spice Girls page. And so I was kinda skimming through it, when I came across a fantastic piece of information: a mention of something called Viva Forever: The Musical.
Yes, you read that right. A musical!! A Spice Girls musical!!
I’m not sure I can put into words exactly just how excited this makes me.
I absolutely love musicals, especially if they are songs that I would know before getting there. We Will Rock You and Jersey Boys were amazing, as was the stage version of Mama Mia!. Sadly, I did not get the chance to see Rock of Ages when it was here in Toronto, although hopefully the movie version will be great.
I’ve been a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer since the day the first episode aired. I watched every episode, until my high school social life made it hard to keep up. Also, they changed channels.
Anyways, I had never seen past the fifth season. So when I discovered that it was on Netflix, I started watching from Season One again. Eventually, I reached the seventh episode of season six, “Once More With Feeling.” It is the only episode in the series to be a done as a musical.
I was expecting it to be a campy, corny, kind of embarrassing version of a musical. Now, I’m not any kind of musical genius, or even remotely musically inclined, but I’m pleased to say that I was completely wrong.
