Director of Spice Girls musical Viva Forever named

Marianne Elliott has been named as the director of the long-awaited Spice Girls musical, Viva Forever.

Due to open in the West End near the end of 2012, the show is set to be a musical comedy based around the hugely popular girl group's hits, which included Spice Up Your Life, Wannabe and Say You'll Be There.

Elliot's previous projects include work at the Royal Shakespeare Company and a spell at the National Theatre, during which time she worked on War Horse, Saint Joan and All's Well That Ends Well.

Producer Judy Craymer, who was also the brains behind the hit Mamma Mia!, said: "With her theatrical aptitude for exploring strong women and their relationships and her meticulousness to detail, she is absolutely the right person to direct this new musical which is all about female friendship, celebrity and fame. "

Mamma Mia! celebrated its 12th anniversary of entertaining those on London theatre breaks in early April and has so far been seen by 45 million people.

The Spice Girls' manager, Simon Fuller, also has a hand in the new musical, which was penned by Jennifer Saunders.
