The Summer Musical is Head Over Heels!

Posted on December 20, 2018

This summer Actor's Express will stage the outrageous musical Head Over Heels, featuring the songs of The Go-Go’s. Directed by Artistic Director Freddie Ashley, this will be one of the very first post-Broadway productions of this bold new musical comedy. 

“It’s hard to imagine what we need right now more than joy. And that’s what you get with Head Over Heels – pure, gleeful, unabashed joy,” says Freddie. “It’s one of the funniest musicals I’ve ever seen on Broadway and the infectious music of The Go-Go’s is the perfect complement to James Magruder’s razor-sharp script. You won’t be able to stop smiling.”

A wildly entertaining celebration of love, the Broadway production made history as the first Broadway show to feature a role originated by a transgender woman (RuPaul’s Drag Race fan favorite Peppermint). Actor’s Express will continue the show’s tradition of inclusive casting. 

The show runs July 20 - August 25, 2019. Tickets are now on sale here.
