A jukebox musical features the best of The Go-Go’s, the gender-bending Head Over Heels will have people of all ages cheering for more.

Based on the plot of The Countess of Pembroke’s Arcadia, it follows King Basilius (Jeremy Kushnier) and his family as they try to protect the famous “Beat” of Arcadia prophesized by Pythio (Peppermint) to be lost. Basilius’ daughters Pamela (Bonnie Milligan) and Philoclea (Alexandra Socha) figure out love on the way.

The cast is absolutely phenomenal. Kicking off the show with “We Got the Beat,” their energy is high and they carry that throughout the show while engaging in hilarious antics. Two breakout stars are Andrew Durand as the cross-dressing Musidorus and Milligan as the self-loving Pamela, who belts her way through the show.

Final say: You’ll be head over heels. ★★★★☆
