About Back to the Future on Broadway
Teenage love is larger than life, but how about romance that revolves around time travel and a flying car? To experience that, it’s time to go Back to the Future. The hit Broadway musical, based on the beloved 1985 blockbuster comedy, is now running at the historic Winter Garden Theatre in New York City. Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard wrote the high-flying score for this new musical, co-created by Bob Gale, who wrote the book based on his 1985 screenplay.
In Back to the Future, Marty McFly is an average 1980s teenager with a family, girlfriend… and a mad scientist for a best friend. After accidentally using the eccentric Doc Brown’s time-traveling automobile, Marty finds himself in the 1950s watching his parents meet — but not fall in love. Marty’s life depends on him smoothly patching things up and getting back to the future. But the clock is ticking, a storm is brewing, and a magical car may be ready to soar overhead and make everything right, just in the nick of time.
