Their lips are no longer sealed.
“Head Over Heels,” the musical featuring songs by The Go-Go’s will begin previews at Broadway’s Hudson Theatre on June 23. Opening night is July 26.
The dates for the show, which marks the Broadway producing debut of Gwyneth Paltrow, were announced on Monday, just ahead of a concert “teaser” at the Bowery Ballroom, where members of the iconic ’80s pop band performed.
The announcement was delivered by The Go-Go’s alongside the musical’s director Michael Mayer (“Spring Awakening,” “American Idiot”).

Woven together with the group’s hits including “We Got the Beat,” “Vacation” and “Our Lips Are Sealed,” the musical is an Elizabeth romp packing a prophecy of doom, mistaken identities and sexual adventures.
The principal cast features Andrew Durand, Taylor Iman Jones, Jeremy Kushnier, Bonnie Milligan, Peppermint, Tom Alan Robbins, Alexandra Socha and Rachel York.
The Go-Go’s call the show “a celebration of love in all its forms.”
