Back to the Future: The Musical will kick off a North American tour in the summer of 2024, the producers announced today.
The tour will begin less than a year after the show opens on Broadway, scheduled for August 3 at the Winter Garden Theater.
The musical will open its tour at Playhouse Square in Cleveland in June 2024 and continue at the Belk Theater at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center in Charlotte, North Carolina the following month. The tour will be technical and will play preview performances at Proctors in Schenectady, New York. Further tour stops and casting will be announced at a later date.
“After London and soon Broadway, we are delighted to take Back to the Future: The Musical on the road,” said lead producer Colin Ingram. “We look forward to entertaining and exciting audiences, who have cherished this story for decades, with the moving and spectacular musical version.”
Today’s announcement was made by Ingram with Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, the creators of the Back to the future film trilogy. The musical won the 2022 Olivier Award for Best New Musical after opening in London’s West End.
