They say the heart of rock and roll is still beating...on Broadway! Huey Lewis announced on Thursday that his catalog of '80s pop-rock hits will serve as the basis of a new stage musical called (you guessed it) The Heart of Rock and Roll. Lewis announced the project in a funny video co-starring Jimmy Kimmel. "I'm pleased to announce that I will be playing the role of Huey Lewis," Kimmel declares in the clip, before Lewis clarifies that he's not a character in the musical. The shocking revelation prompts a tearful Kimmel to tell Lewis, "'The Power of Love' is a curious thing, Huey...It makes one man weep and that man's gonna be me right now." 

A premiere date and other production details for Heart of Rock and Roll have yet to be announced.
