GREAT SCOTT! A “Back to the Future” Musical?!



First, Groundhog Day: The Musical, now…Back to the Future: The Musical?!

Well, that’s what the two men behind the movie are saying!

Bob Gale, the movie’s co-writer, told Slash Film that he and director/co-writer Robert Zemeckis will be working together to create a stage musical based on the first film that will first premiere in London in 2015.

Said Gale:

We know the integrity of the material will be preserved in a production that will be a wonderful companion to the trilogy. We intend to use music from the movie along with brand new songs to make a version of Back to the Future that is fresh, entertaining, and takes advantage of all the amazing things that can now be done on stage.

The duo will be working with the same team that brought the award winning Wicked and Billy Elliott to the stage and speaking as someone who has seen both, those two musicals, while completely different, were simply spectacular.

(And don’t worry: “The Power of Love” will be in the BTTF musical.)
