Cast Recordings & Albums   Hear New Version of 'Back in Time' From the Upcoming Back to the Future Musical
The stage adaptation of the ’80s comedy will play the U.K. in 2020.

Ahead of the world premiere of the long-gestating Back to the Future musical, take a listen to a new take on a familiar tune. Above, Olly Dobson offers his version of “Back in Time,” the Huey Lewis and the News single featured in the original 1985 comedy. Be on the lookout for some new lyrics.

Dobson will take on the role of Marty McFly (originated on screen by Michael J. Fox) in the John Rando-helmed musical, which will play the Manchester Opera House February 20, 2020, through May 17. An engagement in London’s West End will follow; details and additional casting to come.

The show, featuring a book by the movie’s co-writer, Bob Gale, will feature additional songs from the source material, including “The Power of Love,” and “Johnny B. Goode,” but will largely be comprised of an original score by Glen Ballard (Jagged Little Pill) and original film composer Alan Silvestri. Dobson previously offered a sample of the duo’s collaboration with the track “Put Your Mind to It.”
