Broadway’s about to go “Back In Time” next year when the musical adaptation of the iconic ’80s film Back to the Future opens.

The verified account for the film trilogy confirmed the news via Twitter sharing, “Synchronize Your Watches — The Future’s coming to Broadway in 2023!!!”

 

Back to the Future: The Musical originally premiered at the Manchester Opera House in May 2019 and would eventually transfer to the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End in September 2021. The production would win the Laurence Olivier Award (London’s West End equivalent to the Tony Awards) for Best New Musical in 2022.

Music and lyrics for Back to the Future: The Musical are by Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard, while the book is by Bob Gale, who co-wrote the original film screenplay with Robert Zemeckis.

10 Fictional Dates from Movies Everyone Should Know

  • November 5, 1955 (Back to the Future)

    A true red-letter date, indeed.

  • March 24, 1984 (The Breakfast Club)

    On this fateful day, a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal served detention, and teen films were never the same.

  • April 25 (Miss Congeniality)

    Honestly, Miss Rhode Island isn’t wrong.

  • July 4, 1996 (Independence Day)

    “Perhaps, it’s fate today is the fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom.” Independence Day is so delightfully over the top, and this scene below perfectly encapsulates its melodrama.

  • August 29, 1997 (Terminator 2: Judgement Day)

    “On August 29, 1997, it’s gonna feel pretty f—ing real to you too!” A very dark scene, but on the plus side, there wasn’t an apocalypse in reality. So, yay?

  • February 14, 2016 (Ghostbusters II)

    “Valentine’s Day. Bummer.”

  • December 25, 1985 (Rocky IV)

    AKA: The day Rocky Balboa ended the Cold War. [Cues John Cafferty’s “Hearts on Fire”]

  • December 24, 1988 (Die Hard)

    [Insert Die Hard is a Christmas movie rant here.]

  • April 8 (Empire Records)

    “We mustn’t dwell. No, not today. We can’t. Not on Rex Manning day!”

  • October 3 (Mean Girls)

    A truly momentous date in all of cinema.
