While we’re not ordinarily ones to report on musicals here on auspOp, when said musical is coming to Australia with a Spice Girl as one of the leads, you know for sure we’re going to be onto it like flies at a Sunday barbecue.
Yes, Melanie C will star in the new arena production of ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ when it opens in Australia in late May.
