UNIVERSAL STUDIOS ANNOUNCES PRODUCTION OF BACK TO THE FUTURE THE MUSICAL
New York City, NY (PRWEB) October 22, 2004 -- A bit of the past, a bit of the future, and a bit of show tunes will be experienced by visitors to Broadway’s newest show: BACK TO THE FUTURE .
Based on the 1985 film of the same name, BACK TO THE FUTURE, is the story of down-on-his-luck Scientist Dr. Emmet Brown and Marty McFly, a spry teenager. Together they have adventures across the sea of time.
BACK TO THE FUTURE stars Bob Amal as Doc Brown and Andy Trainor as Marty McFly. Other confirmed cast members are Rich Annato, Carmen Ghota, the fat girl from Full House, and the guy who played “The Big Ragu” on Laverne and Shirley.
Bob Amal comes to BACK TO THE FUTURE after playing Doc Brown at the photo booth outside the Back to the Future ride attraction in Universal Studios, Florida. He has been seen as the ‘guy inside the Purple Teletubbie’ during a US tour, he plays the piano, and was also once arrested for driving through a toll booth naked.
Andy Trainor has never acted before, but got the part after the producers confused him with someone else.
The screenplay for the film was adapted for Broadway by Huey Lewis, who wrote songs for the feature film. Surprisingly, Huey tossed out all of the memroble songs from the original film and replaced them with new tunes such as ‘You Have Started the Flux Capacitor in My Heart,’ ‘Too Many Jiggawatts’ and ‘Hey You Look Like The Big Ragu.’
The show is scheduled to open in March.
Well, that's the press release. I don't know about you, but I'm going!
