The Beat on Broadway?! Jeff Whitty to Pen Book for Go-Go’s Jukebox Musical, Produced by Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow & The Go-Gos
Jeff Whitty signs on to write the book for a new Go-Go's musical, produced by Gwyneth Paltrow.

Way back in 2012, Broadway.com reported that Oscar winner, singer, organic foodie and webmistress Gwyneth Paltrow was in talks to produce a bio musical based on the life and music of the ‘80s pop group the Go-Go’s, alongside British folk singer Donovan Leitch. Well, it looks like the beat is finally coming to Broadway! Showbiz411.com reports that Tony winner Jeff Whitty (Avenue Q) has signed on to pen the script for the new musical. Although no official dates or theater have been announced, this Go-Go's extravaganza could be hitting the Great White Way (on water skis?) in the near future.

The new project, described as a jukebox musical with a twist, will include classic '80s hits by the Go-Go’s including “Our Lips Are Sealed” and “We Got the Beat.” The musical is reportedly based on “surprising source material” that has not yet been revealed.
