Students Onstage Performing Head Over Heels

Dallas Voice - Head Over Heels

From the Dallas Voice:

"On Wednesday, University of Texas at Arlington Department of Theatre and Dance opened its spring musical Head Over Heels in its mainstage theater. With a massive space, the department filled the stage with an expansive set of graffitied and fluorescent tones mixed with some Renaissance vibes. The musical features music by The Go-Go’s and was directed by program head J. Austin Eyer. 

With a mere six performances, get to this queer extravaganza as soon as possible. "

Book by James Magruder, Music & Lyrics by The Go-Go’s

Directed by J. Austin Eyer, Music Direction by Vicky Nooe

Head Over Heels is a musical featuring the songs of The Go-Go’s and based on Philip Sidney’s The Countess of Pembroke’s Arcadia. The royal court of Arcadia is threatened by the mystical Oracle of the Delphi with the loss of its “Beat,” the divine power that ensures the kingdom’s. prosperity. King Basilius, whose title is at stake, forces the members of the royal family and court to the woods to escape the Oracle’s seemingly unavoidable prophecies. Through a plot containing usurped kingship, unlikely lovers, and gender-fluid disguises, Head Over Heels explores unconditional love, no matter someone’s gender or sexual identity.
