I'm seriously considering flying to see her performance. I've never been to anything like this is there ever an opportunity to meet her you think? I've never met a spice girl before and I'd love to get an autograph. This is the first time I've ever had any sort of money to go somewhere where one of the girls will be.

I think that's pretty big!

the girls did a performance on NYE in December 1997 but it was for ABC...I still love that performance


That's nice!
I read that the show will be broadcast from Time Squate, does anybody have informations on how to attend the specific performance of the show, or if all the performances have been pre-recorded and Daryl and Mel will just be in a studio doing comments about the party.

I really want to know if it's worthwhile to go to Time Square, if MelB will be present somewhere...

I'm excited for Mel but I'm also worried. I hope she's been spending any downtime wisely and she's been relentlessly having singing lessons. She can blow her choreography out the water, but singing is a different story. I hope the critics are kind.

I was under the impression she was due to begin on Dec. 28 but from what I can see on Twitter she was sat in the audience watching the show. Can anyone confirm this?

Maybe she just needed another day to get ready for it...

Aren't press nights typically a few weeks after the initial opening?

Most people aren't even back to work yet. There's a lot of time in the new year for reviews.

Do they really do press nights for shows like Chicago? The revival production's been running for, like, 20 years on Broadway. Mel's a big deal to us, but I don't know that they do press nights just for when old shows get new cast members. I mean. I don't know that for a fact. I could be wrong.

But. Anyway. I was pretty concerned the role was written for someone with a far different vocal range...and she'd struggle...but I'd be very happy to be proven wrong. I've only seen two tweets about her performance (why so few?). Both were positive. So. Maybe she's doing well?

It's really hard to film videos on Broadway shows. The staff is very alert and focused watching the audience and checking if they're filming or not. I went to see Beauty & The Beast in Broadway years ago and I had the camera in my had because it didn't fit my pocket and I didn't want leave it on the seat/floor in case I forgot it there and the same girl came to me twice to ask me to stop recording despite me showing her the camera was off and I was just holding it in my hands.

I took advantage of that and ended up filming some bits here and there when she finally believed me, though. :D :angel:

I saw her tonight with my partner, Mel was fanstastic and the audience loved her. Vocally she was on point and her dancing was fantastic.

It was too hard to record as the ambassador theatre is quite small with lots of staff. After the show she came out and took photos and was by far the most popular.

Then she got into a car with her kids and left.

I'm flying to NYC this weekend to see her! I've only gotten to meet Victoria back in 2007 when she was pushing her line of clothes.

Did Mel sign for everyone? Where did she come out at? :Angel:

Thought I would share my photo with Mel B after her performance on Saturday! She was gracious and signed basically all the Playbill of the people that waited outside and took photographs with everyone that wanted one. I was shaking and freaking out. I still can't believe I met her.

That's so awesome! Was she at the front of the theatre or was there a stage door?

This was in the front. Stage Door is located right next to the box office. The town car was waiting out front with barricades on both sides but she came out and greeted everyone.

It was a dream come true.
