MELANIE C, the chart-topping star of the biggest girl band of all time – The Spice Girls – is to make her theatrical debut in BLOOD BROTHERS. Her opening performance on Monday 26 October will mark the first by a Spice Girl in a West End musical.
Liverpool born Melanie will star as Mrs Johnstone in Willy Russell’s legendary West End smash hit, one of the longest running shows in musical history. Melanie will follow in the footsteps of Barbara Dickson, Kiki Dee, Carole King and Helen Reddy in taking on the iconic role in the year that BLOOD BROTHERS celebrates its 21st birthday at London’s Phoenix Theatre.
