SPEND SPEND SPEND
Wed 13th – Sat 16th June 2018, Montgomery Theatre, Sheffield.
Spend Spend Spend is a powerful musical based on the dramatic and tragic life of Castleford born Viv Nicholson.
In 1961 Viv won £152,319 in the football pools. When a reporter asked her what she planned to do with her new fortune, she replied, “I’m going to spend, spend, spend!,” which is exactly what she did. Her rags-to-riches-to-rags-again story takes her through five husbands, expensive sports cars, fur coats, and jewelry, a battle with alcohol, and bankruptcy as, unable to cope with her new-found wealth and fame, she rapidly spirals downward.
Spend Spend Spend premiered in 1998 at the West Yorkshire Playhouse and won the Barclays Theatre Award for Best Musical of the Year. The West End production opened in October 1999 at the Piccadilly Theatre, where it ran until August 5, 2000. The original cast included Barbara Dickson, Steven Houghton, and Rachel Leskovac.
In 2009 the Watermill Theatre presented a revival of the musical, followed by a 7-week tour across the country. It was awarded the 2010 TMA award for Best Musical and Kirsty Hoiles (young Viv) was awarded the TMA award for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical.
