Musicals featuring the hits of Donna Summer, Cher, The Go-Go’s and The Bee Gees are either in the works or heading to Broadway. Up next: Huey Lewis & the News. In a video you can watch now at RollingStone.com, Huey announces that a musical called The Heart of Rock and Roll is on tap. The production is what’s known as a “jukebox musical,” meaning it’s not actually the story of the band. Instead, it’ll feature an original story that incorporates all their hits, such as “The Power of Love,” “Hip to Be Square,” “If This Is It” and more. In other words, it’s more like Mamma Mia and Movin’ Out than Jersey Boys. It’s not clear what the storyline of the musical will be.
