While Melanie C is planning to release her fifth studio album sometime in 2010, at the moment the former Spice Girl is enjoying rave reviews as Mrs. Johnstone in a new West End production of the award-winning musical, Blood Brothers. Brothers tells the story of two twin brothers separated at birth, “re-united by a twist of fate and a mother’s haunting secret.” London’s The Daily Telegraph calls Melanie’s debut “absolutely sensational”,” going on to say even “If you have [seen Blood Brothers], you will need no further encouragement [then] to see it again with Melanie C now in such glorious form.” The London Evening Standard adds “If we already knew she could sing, we might not have guessed she’d prove this adept in acting.”
This is very exciting news indeed. More often than not, a celebrity appearance in a play or musical is more spectacle than anything, leaving much to be desired in terms of singing and acting ability. This doesn’t appear to be the case with Mel C, whom we already knew could sing. Acting seems to come naturally to the star as well. Well done Melanie! Still looking forward to your new “rockin’” album.
