The iconic Back To The Future is coming to London, but not like you would expect.
In honor of the 30th anniversary of the classic 80’s trilogy, Robert Zemeckis and the original film’s screenwriters, Bob Gale and Jamie Lloyd, will be showing a musical version of Back To The Future at the London West End stage. Bleeding Cool goes on to say that new music will be composed by Alan Silvestri, who worked extensively with Zemeckis on films including both Back to the Future sequels, and songwriter and music producer Glen Ballard will also be part of the music team.
According to The Telegraph, this isn’t really going to be just like the movies. Jamie Lloyd was quoted saying: “Rather than attempt to recreate such an iconic movie on stage, we have assembled a brilliant artistic team to discover a unique theatrical language to take audiences on a journey through time in a vibrant, unexpected way. The production will include illusions, skateboarding and many other surprises that will capture the spirit of the film but freshly interpret it for a new audience.”
Oh my! We’ll have to see how it goes. While Bleeding Cool is wondering how the Delorean will get on and off the stage every night, Larkable is wondering if the cast is going to be British or American? Could you imagine? Doc Brown and Marty McFly with English accents? If so, we already have suggestions for the cast:
