Charlotte Caffey and Jane Wiedlin, formerly of the Go-Go's, are just about done whipping up an off-Broadway musical based on the life of porn actress Linda Lovelace. The play stars none other than former Family Ties actress Tina Yothers, in the role that could save her a lifetime of selling door to door Amway. Former That Dog vixen Anna Waronker is co-writing the music, which she described to Billboard as "a rock opera, with soaring ballads, driving rhythms, blues, disco, and rock, reminiscent of the '70s, but also very different." Lovelace: The Musical will preview in Los Angeles in June before moving to New York for a fall run. Wiedlin is a creative consultant on the project which will call Theatre of NOTE its home when in Los Angeles, June 20-22, with an additional show on June 27. Now run, don't walk, and go rent some Linda Lovelace movies...heck, show them to the boss and kiddies!
