Gwyneth Paltrow Producing Broadway Musical Based on Music of The GoGos

Gwyneth Paltrow is producing a Broadway musical, Showbiz 411's Roger Friedman reports:

GogosThe show is based on the music of the GoGo’s, the California New Wave girl group of the early 1980s. Paltrow’s partner in the endeavor is Donovan Leitch, son of the 60s rock and folk icon Donovan, of “Mellow Yellow” and ‘Sunshine Superman” fame.

The pair have enlisted Jeff Whitty of “Avenue Q” fame to write the book, and I’m told it’s almost done. The GoGos’ iconic hits included “We Got the Beat” and “Our Lips Are Sealed.” I’m told the idea is for a jukebox show with a twist– it will be set in the 1600s and based on surprising source material that can’t be revealed yet.

  1. Why on earth is Andy Towle promoting Gwyneth Paltrow? What's she ever done for us?

  2. Listening to the go-gos for three minutes is fun. Listening to them for two hours is torture.

  3. This is the reward she gets for very recently declaring that she loves to gorge on Chik-Fil-A?

  6. Paltrow is a detestable idiot.

    Have you read her website - the woman is completely and utterly out of touch with any sort of real world.

    And she eats Chik-Fil-A

  8. I wonder what Belinda Carlisle has to say about this?

  9. Belinda must be behind this. She's making money off the "Go Go's" brand. She was always the "Gene Simmons" of the band.

  11. Paltrow really is annoying.

    Besides, the Bangles are soooo much more talented than the Go-Go's.
