The Spice Girls came together to launch a new musical in London's West End today, reports the BBC. Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Geri Halliwell briefly united to announce Viva Forever!, a musical based on the group's hits. Conceived by Mamma Mia! producer Judy Craymer and written by comedian Jennifer Saunders, Viva Forever! will involve the "bitter reality of fame" in a TV talent show.

The show will open at London's Piccadilly Theatre on December 11th, with previews starting November 27th. The Spice Girls last reunited in late 2007 for a world tour that was cut short in February 2008.
