Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is backing a period musical featuring the songs of The Go-Go's.
The consciously uncoupled actress (and sometimes singer) has been prepping the stage show with Avenue Q's Jeff Whitty since 2012 and the production will launch as part of the 2015 Oregon Shakespeare Festival in June.
"It's called Head Over Heels and we are going to workshop it in the spring at a Shakespeare festival. It's set in Elizabethan times with all Go-Go's music. It's pretty great. It's amazing; it's gonna be cool."
Its source material is the 16th century novel The Countess of Pembroke's Arcadia.
