Head Over Heels New York Tickets
Head Over Heels New York TicketsHead Over Heels is a raucous jukebox musical that features some of the most popular songs from the rock band The Go-Go’s. Its music is set to an original story about the royal family of the mythical and prosperous kingdom of Arcadia. Romantic entanglements, mistaken identities and other scandals quickly ensue, even as an oracle’s prophecy of doom looms over all of them. If you are a fan of The Go-Go’s or simply musical comedies in general, then you can catch a live performance in New York.
We Got the BeatHead Over Heels is a quirky mash-up of two idiosyncratic sources: the music of the 1980's all-female New Wave rock band The Go-Go’s and the 16th century romance novel called The Countess of Pembroke’s Arcadia by Sir Philip Sydney. Jeff Witty, who had previously won a Tony Award for the book of Avenue Q, read the novel in college and thought it would create an interesting synthesis with the music of The Go-Go’s. He wrote much of the book and inserted the music into key sections of the story. The original version of the musical made its world debut at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in 2015. After the end of the initial performances, the book underwent subsequent revisions by James Magruder for its Broadway debut. Following a brief engagement in San Francisco, Head Over Heels arrived at the Hudson Theatre in the theater district of midtown Manhattan on July 26th, 2018, with a cast of Andrew Durand, Taylor Iman Jones, Jeremy Kushnier and Bonnie Milligan. The actress Peppermint also made history as the first trans-woman to play a principle role in a Broadway production as the character of Pythio. Head Over Heels closed on Jan. 6th, 2019, after 164 performances. The production received four nominations from the 2019 Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Outstanding New Broadway Musical, and another two nominations from the Drama League Awards. Bonnie Milligan also won a Theatre World Award for Outstanding Debut Performance.
