The hits of the Go-Go’s will head to the stage next year in Head Over Heels. The new musical will play San Francisco’s Curran in spring 2018, with a Broadway bow expected to come in the following season.
If you’re excited, you’re not alone; these four members of the all-female rock band are as well. Take a look at the exclusive video above as Charlotte Caffey, Belinda Carlisle (from India), Jane Wiedlin, and former member Kathy Valentine express their enthusiasm for the project.
“It is fun, twisted, and fabulous—just like us,” promises Caffey. Inspired by Philip Sidney’s Arcadia, the story contains a bevy of hijinks, mistaken identity, and scandal—all set to the backdrop of such songs as “We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “Head Over Heels.”
Michael Mayer will direct the staging, which is produced by a team that includes Gwyneth Paltrow.
