Singer Geri Halliwell wants to leave her pop career behind and try her hand at theatre. The former SPICE GIRL - who sparked speculation of a reunion with the group earlier this month (07FEB07) after a dinner date with Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham - is looking to follow up her acting debut in 1997's SPICE WORLD with a stint on London's West End. She says, "I think the stage is next for me. Quite a few casting people have asked to see me. I love the directness of the stage and have always hankered after a life on it! "Hopefully, I'll be able to prove my critics wrong."
