Back To The Future: The Musical


Recommended Posts

Masterworks Broadway is delighted to announce the release of the Original Cast Recording to Back To The Future: The Musical. The musical is staged at the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End and features new music by multi-Grammy winners Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard alongside hit songs from the movie including The Power Of Love, Johnny B. Good, Earth Angel and Back In Time.

 

Behind this eagerly-anticipated stage show are Producer Colin Ingram (Ghost – The Musical) and Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, the creators of the Back To The Future film trilogy. The show moves to the West End following an out-of-town opening in March 2020 at the Manchester Opera House where it was enthusiastically received by critics and public alike. Roger Bart and Olly Dobson will reprise the roles of ‘Doc Brown’ and ‘Marty McFly’ respectively. Also returning are Hugh Coles as ‘George McFly’, Rosanna Hyland as ‘Lorraine Baines’, Cedric Neal as ‘Goldie Wilson’, Aidan Cutler as ‘Biff Tannen’ and Courtney-Mae Briggs as ‘Jennifer Parker’.

Yeah, Silvestri was pretty enthusiastic with the musical on his social media.

 

Yes, he's been posting regularly about it for months now.

The album announcement says the musical premiered in March 2020, but in Silvestri's recent postings it looks like he's still working on it. Weird.

Maybe some pandemic postponement thing. I believe he posted a photo on Insta yesterday or the day before where he attended the gala premiere. Alongside Zemeckis, Lloyd, Gale, Ballard and some other dude.

Have to admit that I'm looking forward to seeing it sometime, although not heard any of the songs - they seem t have focussed on the existing songs in the marketing. A friend of mine who is a professional musicals/classical reviewer really enjoyed it so I'm relatively optimistic... it's certainly no Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark style disaster.
