The cosmic clock ticks as the stage unfolds with heartwarming chaos and hilariously fantastical ideas about what our present should be like. This performance goes beyond mere nostalgia, offering an exhilarating voyage that resonates with both new audiences and those returning for another taste of this ’80s classic.

The Legacy Lives On

The original Back to the Future was more than just a movie; it became a cultural phenomenon defining the ’80s and ’90s. Its unique blend of science fiction, comedy, and family drama struck a chord worldwide, making it a beloved trilogy. The enduring legacy lies in Marty McFly, a relatable hero whose journey through time mirrored universal human experiences. Let’s not forget the eccentric Doc Brown, whose genius and quirks made the trilogy a story about friendship and courage.

Broadway Behind the Scenes Magic

The journey from screen to stage was no easy feat. The musical adaptation, born in 2012, faced several challenges and setbacks, including director changes and shifts in the creative team. But fortunately, Back to the Future: The Musical found new leaders who brought the vision to life on Broadway.

Meet the maestros behind the magic – Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard, a dynamic duo crafting a new score that elevates the narrative and engages audiences in a fresh way. It’s not just about reliving the hits like “Back in Time” but also experiencing new songs that delve deeper into the story, like Doc’s vision of the future in the second act opener, “21st Century.”

The Moment You’ve Been Waiting for – DeLorean, Live!

The biggest challenge? Transforming cinematic magic and special effects into a live stage production. Imagine the thrill of time travel brought to life on stage! One of the most significant triumphs is the iconic DeLorean’s transition. It’s not just a prop; it’s a character filled with details and easter eggs that’ll delight fans. From gull-wing doors to a retro-futuristic dashboard, the stage DeLorean captures the original’s magic, finally bringing it to life for long-time fans. Kids will be blown away – adults will enjoy the spectacle, too! 

Adapting Back to the Future for Broadway

Casting the iconic duo was no small task. Roger Bart (Doc Brown) and Casey Likes (Marty McFly) stepped into the legendary roles, bringing their unique interpretations while honoring the essence of the movie’s iconic characters. Bart, a TonyⓇ Award winner, embraced Doc’s eccentricities, while Likes captured Marty’s youthful charisma and growth throughout the story.

For Likes, the pressure of living up to expectations was real, but embracing the responsibility turned it into a natural ride. Bart, tasked with portraying Doc Brown after OG Christopher Lloyd, saw the opportunity as a surreal dream come true. Their dedication to both roles ensured Back to the Future: The Musical was a resounding success.
