Gwyneth Paltrow is also an entrepreneur and runs “Goop.” She is now adding producer to her list of accomplishments. She will join producers Rick Ferrari, Donovan Leitch, Christine Russell, Louise Gund, Hunter Arnold, and Tom Kirdahy in producing “Head Over Heels.” It is a brand new musical featuring songs from the legendary femme rock band, “The Go-Go’s.” It is due to be on Broadway next season.
Check out a little boomerang video Gwyneth posted for Goop.
Head Over Heels starts in San Francisco’s Curran Theater April 24 – May 20, 2018. The team behind this music includes Tony winner, Michael Mayer as director, musical supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Pulitzer Prize and Tony winner, and Tom Kitt. Choreography is by Emmy nominee Spencer Liff.
Head Over Heels is based on “The Arcadia” by Sir Philip Sidney. Deadline describes it as 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.”
Here are some of the songs you can expect to hear when you see the show:
We Got the Beat
Get Up and Go
Our Lips are Sealed
Lust to Love
Head Over Heels
Mad About You
Heaven is a Place on Earth
The Go-Go’s released a statement saying, “If you told us 30 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 crazy idea! Yet here we are, with Head Over Heels – a celebration of love in all its forms, joyful, fun and full of heart, driven by the songs that for decades have been making people jump from their seats and dance.”
