Earlier this year the highly successful West End production of Back to the Future announced that it would be crossing the ocean to bring DeLoreans and mad scientists to Broadway. While teasers encouraged excited fans to “synchronize your watches,” there were no details about when the show would run or when tickets would be available. Today—Back to the Future Day of course—those questions were answered along with a fantastic surprise.
The original cast recording from The West End production of Back to the Future is available now. Featuring 26 tracks, the album is streaming now on all major music platforms and physical editions can be purchased on CD or vinyl.
Along with the album drop, Back to the Future finally revealed details about the Broadway run of the show. “If you’re gonna celebrate #BackToTheFutureDay, why not do it with some style…” The show said on Instagram. “And an official Broadway announcement?!”
Back to the Future will officially make its way to Broadway, moving into the Winter Garden Theatre—currently home to The Music Man—June 30, 2023. Tickets are available now to Back to the Future email subscribers and American Express card members, but the public should synchronize their watches for Friday, October 28 at 10AM ET when ticket sales officially open.
The Olivier Best New Musical-winning West End run of Back to the Future: The Musical opened last year and stars Olly Dobson as Marty McFly and Roger Bart as Emmet “Doc” Brown. The musical is, of course, based on the 1985 film which follows teen Marty McFly on a time-traveling adventure back to the 1950s after his friend, the scientist Doc Brown, takes them for a ride in a DeLorean that can do more than speed down the highway.
