New in 2018 A new musical about a royal family that must prevent an oracle's prophecy of doom, featuring the songs of the all-female rock band the Go-Go's Begins June 23rd.
From the producers: An inspired mash-up of posh and punk, "Head Over Heels" is an unpredictable Elizabethan romp about a royal family that must prevent an oracle’s prophecy of doom. In order to save their beloved kingdom, the family embarks on an extravagant journey where they are faced with mistaken identities, love triangles, sexual awakening and self-discovery.
"Head Over Heels" uses the music of the Go-Go's to tell an updated take on Philip Sidney’s "Arcadia." Audiences can expect such Go-Go’s hits as “We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” and the title tune, as well as original Go-Go’s member Belinda Carlisle’s singles “Mad About You” and “Heaven is a Place on Earth.” The musical had it's world premiere in 2018 at the Curran Theatre in San Francisco.
The current cast includes Jeremy Kushnier ("Paramour"), Rachel York ("Disaster!"), Alexandra Socha ("Spring Awakening"), Peppermint ("RuPaul’s Drag Race"), Andrew Durand ("Spring Awakening"), Taylor Iman Jones ("Groundhog Day"), Bonnie Milligan (the national tour of "Kinky Boots"), and Tom Alan Robbins ("The Lion King"). Tony winner Michael Mayer ("American Idiot," "Spring Awakening") directs.
