    Geri Halliwell aka Ginger Spice is bummed. Why? Well, the Spice Girls musical opened in December in London and was canceled eight months ahead of its planned closing night. It wraps in June instead of next February. So it's not really Viva Forever!. More like Viva Six Months.

    Viva Forever!, which features the British girl group's songs, opened in London's West End in December, but as stated, it's closing eight months ahead of schedule due to sluggish ticket sales and lack of interest. The show was scheduled to run through February 2014, but as we said, it'll be closing in June instead. Get it? Got it? Good.

    Ginger Spice tweeted: "We love u all Viva Forever, what a shocka, gutted."

    So, yeah, she is bummed.

    Show producer Judy Craymer, posted a note about the early shuttering. She wrote, "It is with a heavy heart that I've had to make this very difficult decision to post closing notice for Viva Forever! Despite the wonderful audiences, extremely positive feedback and the standing ovation at every performance, we just can't make it work. I am extremely proud of everyone involved in this production. Viva Forever! may be taking it's leave for now in the West End but the legacy of Spice Girls will never fade!"

    What a sweet note!

    Who is your favorite Spice Girl? The aforementioned Ginger? Baby, the blonde? Posh, who is Victoria Beckham? Sporty, who is Mel C.? Scary, who is Mel B.?
