A Back to the Future Musical? Enh, Why Not

The AV Club reports that director Robert Zemeckis, composer Alan Silvestri and Bob Gale working on turning on Back to the Future into a Broadway musical. Presumably the above video is not going to be the starting point. TR contributor Chris Cummins, who sent me the news, is marginally losing his mind over the possibility, but I could see it working. Doing the time travel special effects would be tough, but I imagine there’s a few ways they might make them work in a suitably impressive way for the stage. Really, all I need to be okay with a BttF musical is two things: 1) No Julie Taymor, and 2) a song about Marty trying to avoid having sex with his mother.
