The Go-Go's "Head Over Heels" Musical Eyes Broadway
The Go-Go's got the beat, and now they've potentially got a musical heading to Broadway.
Titled "Head Over Heels," this new musical features music from the Go-Go's' classic catalog, including "We Got The Beat," "Turn To You" and "Our Lips Are Sealed," among others. It has been described as a "rollicking, comedic adventure tale, set in the Elizabethan period" based on Philip Sidney's "Arcadia."
"Head Over Heels" premiered at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival this past summer and now it's eyeing up a Broadway run for the 2018–2019 season. According to Playbill, they also have an out-of-town production scheduled for spring 2018, though additional details are currently unavailable.
The musical's libretto was written by Jeff Whitty ("Avenue Q"), adapted by James Magruder and directed by Michael Mayer ("American Idiot," "Spring Awakening"). Gwyenth Paltrow is reportedly attached as a producer, along with Rick Ferrari, Donovan Leitch and Christine Russell.
