“You built a time machine…. Out of a DeLorean?”
Great Scott! As our friends the Geekenders prepare to mount their brand-new production, HOW I MET MY MOTHER: A BACK TO THE FUTURE MUSICAL PARODY on our stage December 8-10, we thought the time was right to go back – and revisit Robert Zemeckis’ original 80s classic.
Michael J. Fox stars as Marty McFly, a typical suburban teenager (circa 1985) who accidentally travels back in time – to 1955! Cue an amazing soundtrack featuring Huey Lewis and the News, Doc Brown, some angry Libyans, the Enchantment Under the Sea dance, and the horror of getting to know your parents as… kids. (No further exposition necessary – you know the story!) Also starring Lea Thompson, Christopher Lloyd, and Crispin Glover.

BACK TO THE FUTURE (Robert Zemeckis, 1985 / 116 mins / PG) | A young man is accidentally sent 30 years into the past in a time-traveling DeLorean invented by his friend, Dr. Emmett Brown, and must make sure his high-school-age parents unite in order to save his own existence.
