A live action musical of Back to the Future is coming to London's West End next year, with a possible Broadway run if it proves successful enough. AND HOW COULD IT NOT? You think there's going to have a real DeLorean on stage or just a cardboard cutout?
The film's original screenwriters, Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale have teamed with British director Jamie Lloyd to write the book.
They've also tapped Alan Selvestri to compose the music and Grammy-winning songwriter Glen Ballard (Alanis Morrissette, Michael Jackson) to write the lyrics. Selvestri has scored many of Zemeckis' well-known films including Romancing the Stone, Forrest Gump and Cast Away.
Sad fact: I fell off the stage during my middle school's production of Peter Pan. I was one of the Lost Boys and got SUPER lost after getting blinded by the stage lights and ate shit right in front of the first row of parents. Even sadder fact: another kid's parents won $10,000 on America's Home Videos for the fall because my parents didn't come so they could tape it themselves. That's what they were most upset about, by the way. I BROKE A LEG.
Thanks to BBQ, who smells delicious.
