Gwyneth Paltrow to Produce The Go-Go's Broadway Musical

The show will play in San Francisco in the spring before a Broadway run next season.

The Go-Go's are bound for Broadway, with Gwyneth Paltrow in tow.

Paltrow is set to make her Broadway producing debut on Head Over Heels, a new musical comedy featuring the hits of The Go-Go's. The show will play at San Francisco's Curran Theater from April 24 through May 20 before a Broadway run next season at a theater to be announced.

Michael Mayer is directing, with musical supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Tom Kitt and choreography by Spencer Liff. Based on Sir Philip Sidney's 16th-century work The Countess of Pembroke's ArcadiaHead Over Heels' original book was written by Jeff Whitty and adapted by James Magruder.

It features the Go-Go’s hits “We Got the Beat,” “Get Up and Go,” “Cool Jerk,” “Vacation,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “Lust to Love,” “Head Over Heels” and Belinda Carlisle’s solo hits “Mad About You” and “Heaven Is a Place on Earth.”

The musical had its world premiere at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in summer 2015. Rick Ferrari, Donovan Leitch, Christine Russell, Louise Gund, Hunter Arnold and Tom Kirdahy are producing the Broadway run with Paltrow.

"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!" said The Go-Go’s (Charlotte Caffey, Belinda Carlisle, Gina Schock, Jane Wiedlin and Kathy Valentine) in a statement. "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."

Despite the outlaw country revival and popularity of Americana, country music is still in an identity crisis, torn between pop-friendly depictions of happiness and the downright ugliness of real life. Jaime Wyatt—a real-life outlaw from way out west who’s giving teeth to the genre after quietly joining the country music ranks earlier this year after a stint in prison for robbing her dealer—represents a grittier side of the genre. Felony Blues puts together an intimate portrait of a woman-turned-outlaw: “From Outer Space” details the alienating feeling a fuck-up of that proportion creates in a person, while “Giving Back the Best of Me” and “Your Loving Saves Me” reach out and beg their subject to still see them as who they were before. Not everything is awful though, and both “Stone Hotel” and “Wasco” focus on flaunting a little of the street cred a felony can bring in some circles. It’s tough as nails, and at times, arrogant, but have you ever met a cowboy-type with a worthwhile take on life who isn’t? —Annalise Domenighini

Rolling Stone Magazine names Jaime Wyatt's album one of the year's best so far

Rolling Stone Magazine names Jaime Wyatt's album one of the year's best so far

Rolling Stone magazine has named Jaime Wyatt's Felony Blues as one of the 25 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2017 So Far:

"Outlaw country has been all the rage over the last few years, but few artists claiming the outlaw moniker can actually say they've seen the inside of a jail cell. Los Angeles' Jaime Wyatt is one of those few, but don't let her rap sheet fool you. While her debut release Felony Blues can burn barns and honky-tonk with the best of them, it also shows Wyatt to be well versed in vulnerable songwriting – tracks like "Giving Back the Best of Me" are worthy of comparison to works by songwriters Brandy Clark and Lori McKenna. Somewhere between an EP and an album, the seven-track collection introduces Wyatt as a welcome new voice in country music, outlaw or otherwise."
