LONDON, Dec. 13 (UPI) -- The Spice Girls and their manager Simon Fuller celebrated the premiere of the new jukebox musical "Viva Forever!" in London's West End this week.

Also attending the show's debut Tuesday were David Beckham, Michael Caine, Joan Collins, Twiggy, Dawn French, Roland Mouret and Graham Norton.

"Viva Forever!" is based on the songs of the Spice Girls with a book by Jennifer Saunders. It was produced by Judy Craymer.

"The Spice Girls songs have never sounded so good. They inspired a young generation of music fans in the late 90's and now thanks to Judy Craymer and Jennifer Saunders the spirit behind the Spice Girls lives again," Fuller said in a statement.

A synopsis described the show as "an original story of our time, a heart-warmingly, funny tale of friendship in the face of fame and fortune that tells the story of a family thrown into chaos, as Viva and her three best friends get swept up in the mania of a TV talent show where stars are born and dreams are shattered."
