Go-Go's Head Over Heels, Produced by Gwyneth Paltrow, Sets Pre-Broadway Run
The musical will try out at the Curran Theatre before moving to New York City.
Head Over Heels, a new musical featuring the songs of the Go-Go's, will come to Broadway during the 2018-19 season. An out-of-town engagement will take place at San Francisco's Curran Theatre, April 24-May 20, 2018.
Deliriously funny and sexy, Head Over Heels is a tantalizing odyssey wrought with mistaken identities, jealous lovers, romance and scandal. This lavishly quick-witted new musical takes us on an extravagant journey where everything (and everyone) is not quite what it seems. What happens next?… Our lips are sealed!
The Go-Go's are made up of Charlotte Caffey, Belinda Carlisle, Gina Schock, Jane Wiedlin, and Kathy Valentine. Their classic songs, including "We Got the Beat," "Vacation," and "Our Lips Are Sealed," as well as Carlisle's solo hits "Mad About You" and "Heaven Is a Place on Earth," will all be featured in the score.
Directed by Michael Mayer, the musical is inspired by Sir Philip Sidney's The Arcadia, with a concept and original book by Jeff Whitty, adapted by James Magruder. Mayer's creative team includes scenic designer Julian Crouch, lighting designer Kevin Adams, costume designer Arianne Phillips, and sound designer Kai Harada. The lead producers are Rick Ferrari, Donovan Leitch, Christine Russell, Gwyneth Paltrow, Louise Gund, Hunter Arnold, and Tom Kirdahy.
Dates, casting, and venue for the Broadway run will be announced at a later date.
