Musical theatre fans will soon get a blast from the past as a musical version of the iconic 80's movie Back to the Future takes the stage at Manchester Opera House in England.
Composed by Alan Silvestri and Greg Ballard, the production has been in and out of development since 2013, but fans finally have a concrete date to look forward to.
The production will be opening on February 20, 2020. Though the date is far enough away, the production team doesn't need a Delorean to feel it rapidly approaching.
"Our cast is outstanding, the songs are fantastic, and director John Rando is doing an amazing job ensuring the show truly captures the magic of the movie," said book writer Bob Gale, who also co-wrote the films.
Fans are excited as well.
