Gwyneth Paltrow bringing The Go-Go's story to the stage

6/13/2014

Gwyneth Paltrow is in talks to produce her first musical by bringing the story of 1980s girl group The Go-Go's to the stage. The actress is eager to add another string to her bow by creating a theatrical extravaganza inspired by the band, which included Belinda Carlisle, Jane Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey, Kathy Valentine, Gina Schock and Paula Jean Brown. Paltrow is negotiating a deal to co-produce the show with Donovan Leitch and Rick Ferrari, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It is thought Paltrow will take inspiration from successful band-based musicals such as Mamma Mia!, Jersey Boys and American Idiot and use The Go-Go's music throughout the production. The Go-Go's were the first all-girl group who played their own instruments to have a string of hits in the charts.
