Gwyneth Paltrow bringing The Go-Go's musical to Broadway

Gwyneth Paltrow bringing The Go-Go's musical to Broadway

"The Curran has a wonderful history of introducing shows to the world before they go on to Broadway". Their extensive music catalog will form the basis for a new musical called "Head Over Heels", which is set to premiere in San Francisco at the Curran Theatre in April for a limited run before heading to New York City.

Broadway's got the beat: "Head Over Heels", the musical that takes it score from the catalog of the band The Go-Go's, has mapped out its road to NY, with a San Francisco run lined up for a spring opening prior to a move to Broadway for the 2018-19 season.

Details about the plot are still a bit sketchy, but the press release promises "mistaken identities, jealous lovers, romance and scandal". Rick Ferrari, Donovan Leitch, Christine Russell, Louise Gund, Hunter Arnold and Tom Kirdahy are producing the Broadway run with Paltrow.

The Go-Go's (Charlotte Caffey, Belinda Carlisle, Gina Schock, Jane Wiedlin and Kathy Valentine) said, "If you told us thirty years ago that our songs were going to be in a musical, we'd have said, 'Of course they'll be on Broadway!' None of us would have really believed it, though-what a insane idea!"

The score will feature numerous hits associated with the iconic girl group such as "Vacation", "Heaven is a Place on Earth", "Mad About You" and, of course, "We Got the Beat".

Tony Award victor Michael Mayer will direct the show's Broadway stint. "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 show, based on "Arcadia" by Sir Philip Sidney, was conceived by Jeff Whitty, the Tony Award-winning book writer of "Avenue Q".
