A Back to the Future press release

Our Bunch O Junk investigation team has uncovered the following press release, not yet available to the public.

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!

  4. I attended preview of this play in NYC and it was horrible. I actually fell alseep during the production and when I woke up, the play was still awful. It was so bad, that I thought I might still be dreaming, so I got up and walked on stage during the performance to see if I was still dreaming. Oddly, the play is such a mess, no one seemed to notice me wandering on the stage.

  5. I saw the same preview as Freeze and I don't think that this musical legally qualifies as theater. The only time the audience applauded was when I whipped a battery at the actors.

  8. You know what would be AWESOME?? If this musical featured Evel Knievel and he jumped over the time machine with his motorcycle. And then they all traveled back to the 1920s and Evel Knievel had to jump over the time machine with one of those crazy 1920s bicycles with the giant front wheel. And then Cookie Monster ate his hubcaps, but the wheel was so huge, Cookie Monster used it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and midnight snack. Oh man, that would be great theater and that would be SSSSWWWWWWWEEEEEETTTTTT!!!!!!!!!

  9. Ok...check this out....Marty Doc think they are in 1700s Philadelphia, but in a surprise ending, it's learned that they are in modern Phiadelphia's olde city, where all the tour guides are paid to dress and talk like it's the 1700s. They discover the error, when they turn a corner and Doc is crushed by a bus.

    I got nothing. Someone give me a surprise ending or I'm 6 months away from living in a storage shed!!

  12. Sweetie, we called but the Bunchojunk.com receptionist said you would be working late that night because you had to watch reruns of "We Got It Made". Hall of Famer and I even ate at the Rainforest Cafe afterwards.

  13. Not buying it! My receptionist doesn't speak English, so she could have never told you that! The spin stops here.

  14. Sweetie, the truth is that we called to ask you and your receptionist was like, "Take Pepe." And Freeze said, "Who's Pepe?" And she said, "What's a matter man, you no like Pepe?" And we never got to talk to you. Your receptionist just kept repeating over and over, "Take Pepe". And when we refused just kept asking why we didn't like Pepe.

    Although, between her and Anton, I am very impressed with Bunchojunk's willingness to hire immigrants.

  15. Yes, I try to hire non-english speakers because they never criticize the website content.

    I took Pepe once, my big toe itched for the rest of the week.
