What do you get when a Go-Go queen and an alt-rock princess dive headlong into the weird world of alternative musical theatre? You get one of the most fascinating creative partnerships in recent memory. Charlotte Caffey is best known as the guitarist for The Go-Go’s, and the writer/co-writer of many of their most enduring hits (“We Got the Beat,” “Head Over Heels,” “Vacation”). Anna Waronker fronted the beloved rock band That Dog in the ‘90s, before turning to film and TV scoring. While the two have collaborated on everything from the Clueless TV series to family dinners (they’re sisters-in-law), they’ve spent the last decade creating acclaimed theatre pieces like Lovelace: A Rock Opera (about the infamous porn star Linda Lovelace), Hit the Wall (about the Stonewall rebellion) and The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe: Revisited. Caffey and Waronker will discuss their long and varied histories, their creative process and the joys of forging ahead into the musical unknown. Leading the conversation is music icon Peter Asher, who has produced James Taylor, Linda Ronstadt, Neil Diamond, Diana Ross and too many more to count.
