(AP) The much-anticipated Spice Girls musical "Viva Forever" will close June 29 after a disappointing six-month run in London.

Producer Judy Craymer said Thursday that despite improvements to the show "we just can't make it work."

The show opened in December and was not well-received by critics.

The Spice Girls said in a statement that they wanted to thank the cast and fans.

"Although 'Viva Forever' won't continue in the West End we are thrilled that the thousands of people who came to the show had as much fun as we did," the statement said.

The show was based on Spice Girl songs but the members of the popular "girl power" band did not take part in the show. They were involved in promoting the musical.
