The musical will hit the Great White Way in summer next year, with Roger Bart reprising his role as Dr. Emmet Brown. With music by Alan Silvestri and lyrics by Glen Ballard, the show’s creative team features major award winning members, including Tony recipient director John Rando.
“Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads”. At least not to get to the main destination, that’s for sure – because the most advanced Delorean of all time is bound to make its first major flight in just a matter of months. Today, the creators of the Back To The Future trilogy, Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, along with lead producer Colin Ingram, have made official who will be playing two of the iconic characters in the Broadway version of the acclaimed musical. Reprising their roles from the West End show, Roger Bart will hit the Great White Way as Dr. ‘Emmett Brown’, accompanied by Whats On Stage Award-winner Hugh Coles in the role of ‘George McFly’.
Featuring original music by Alan Silvestri (who also penned the films’ unmistakable score), lyrics by Glen Ballard and a book by Bob Gale, this exhilirating sci-fi story takes us through teenage Marty’s jittery adventure to travel back through several decades to the moment his parents met each other. There’s only one chance to ammend things – or he will face ceasing to exist! Directed by Tony Award-granted John Rando (Urinetown, On The Town), the creative team includes Tim Hatley (set and costume design), Tim Lutkin (lighting), Hugh Vanstone (lighting consultant), Gareth Owen (sound) and Finn Ross (video), with choreography by Chris Bailey, musical supervision and arrangements by Nick Finlow and Illusions by Chris Fisher.
