Melanie Chisholm, the Spice Girl formerly known as Sporty, is set to make her West End debut as Mrs Johnstone in Blood Brothers at the Phoenix Theatre. She starts her run on October 26….
Chisholm’s former colleague Mel B is the one Spice Girl to have already trodden the musical theatre boards, as Mimi in Rent, and she too has been linked to an autumn West End role – as Paulette in Legally Blonde.
Any thoughts about this? I think the news about Mel C is smashing, although I wonder if anything will come about the rumours of Mel B playing Paulette in the West End transfer of the Nell Benjamin-Laurence O’Keefe-Heather Hach penned musical based on the hit Reese Witherspoon film of the same name.
