The Go-Go’s musical “Head Over Heels” has booked a Broadway opening this summer, lining up the Hudson Theater for a run that begins previews in June, according to Variety.com.
Already set for a pre-Broadway engagement at San Francisco’s Curran Theater, “Head Over Heels” uses the hits of the all-female band the Go-Go’s to tell a fanciful story set in the Elizabethan era about a royal family and an oracular prediction of doom. Songs in the score including “We Got the Beat,” “Vacation” and “Our Lips Our Sealed,” as well as “Mad About You” and “Heaven is a Place on Earth,” two of band member Belinda Carlyle’s solo hits.
Lined up for the cast are Andrew Durand, Iman Jones, Jeremy Kushnier, Bonnie Milligan, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alum Peppermint, Tom Alan Robbins, Alexandra Socha and Rachel York.
“Head Over Heels” runs April 10-May 6 at the Curran in San Francisco prior to Broadway, where the show begins previews June 23 ahead of a July 26 opening.
