Abstract (Document Summary)

Go-Go's principals Charlotte Caffey and Jane Wiedlin are putting the finishing touches on an off-Broadway musical based on the life of late porn star actress Linda Lovelace.

Starring former Family Ties actress Tina Yothers, Lovelace: The Musical will be previewed next month in Los Angeles before moving to New York in the fall. Caffey is co-writing the music for the production with former That Dog leader Anna Waronker. Wiedlin is a creative consultant on the project.

The musical follows Lovelace's career, which took her from her home in New York to Los Angeles' thriving porn industry. Her role in Deep Throat made Lovelace one of the first true pornographic film stars.
