here was a mini- Spice Girls reunion… and get this ON BROADWAY! Like WTF, thanks for the heads up Spice Girls. Okay, I guess I need to cool my jets, because it wasn’t a full-blown Broadway musical production, but some lucky fans at a broadway show got a free Spice show! During her last performance in “Chicago the Musical,” Mel-B, that’s Scary Spice to jog your memory, was up on stage playing the iconic role of Roxy Hart. It was during one of her numbers she broke character to say: “I want to tell you something, so here’s a story from A-Z” And if you couldn’t hear that earth shatter screams, the crowd went nuts!! Mel-B laughed it off and went straight back into character. She also posted a throwback photo of her as Scary Spice with the girls on IG, with the caption, “Me walking off broadway last night at my last show.” As much as I loved this little snippet of what COULD be to come if a Spice Girls reunion does in fact happen, some other Broadway enthusiasts weren’t as excited. One audience member went on the Broadway World public forum to say, “I just saw Mels final performance as Roxie and she broke character 3 times during Roxie. Is this a normal thing that occurs during a star’s final performance in this show? Is it condoned?” One response was, “Not only is it not common, it is an insult to her fellow performers/the production team/the paying audience/the profession. May her D- talent never make its way onto the professional stage again.” And another said, “There’s a reason why she doesn’t have much of a career now.” Now there were a few people who came to her defense and enjoyed the break in character. On response said, “Yes- people frequently do little things in their final performances. It’s no big deal. (Kristin Chenoweth did a LOT for her last show in Wicked” Clearly from the throwback Spice Girls pic, Mel B was very proud of her spicy moment onstage! Either way, I love theatre; I love the Spice Girls and I LOVE the fact that Mel B shared her past musical career, if even for a second, with us during that show! Do you think if was unprofessional of Mel B to break character, or would you absolutely die to see this happen in real life? Also, what are some of your fave 90’s bands?
