"Head Over Heels" Local Actor Stars At The Broward Center

June 16, 2022

Robert Koutras, a resident of Hollywood, Florida, portrays King Basilius in Slow Burn Theatre Company’s Season Finale Head Over Heels in the Amaturo Theater at the Broward Center from Friday, June 10th, 2022 through Sunday, June 26th, 2022.

A Carbonell Award Nominated Actor, Koutras portrays the head of a royal family on an outrageous journey to save their beloved kingdom from extinction - only to discover the key to their realm’s survival lies within each of their own hearts.

The Story is set to the hit Songs of The Go-Go’s and Belinda Carlisle, including: “We Got The Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “Vacation,” “Heaven Is A Place On Earth” and “Mad About You.”

The bold new Musical Comedy is from the visionaries that rocked Broadway with Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Avenue Q and Spring Awakening. In addition to the music of the Iconic 1980’s All-Female Rock Band, Head Over Heels features a Book by Jeff Whitty and adaptation by James Magruder. This laugh-out-loud love story is Directed by Patrick Fitzwater.

The Musical is one of the first to depict Gender Fluidity and feature a nonbinary character, the Oracle. “I am so excited for everyone to see this Musical. It’s really a story of love and acceptance that everyone can relate to,” says Patrick Fitzwater, Artistic Director and Co-Founder of Slow Burn Theatre. “And the story coupled with incredible Music by The Go-Go’s will be a fun ride for the audience.”

The Musical is Presented by American National Bank and sponsored by The Josephine S. Leiser Foundation and Funding Arts Broward, Inc. (FAB!). Major support for Slow Burn Theatre Company is provided by the Broward County Cultural Division, the Cultural Council and the Broward County Board of County Commissioners. Sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
