Roger Bart will play Dr Emmett Brown in the world premiere of Back To The Future: The Musical.
The production is due to open at the Manchester Opera House on 20th February 2020 for a strictly limited 12-week season, finishing on 17 May, prior to transferring to the West End.
Bart will star alongside Olly Dobson as Marty McFly, Hugh Coles as George McFly, Rosanna Hyland as Lorraine Baines and Cedric Neal as Goldie.
Roger Bart said of playing Dr Emmett Brown, “I am thrilled to be here in the great city of Manchester to introduce to the world this extraordinary incarnation of this hilarious and heart-warming story. Playing the role of Doc Brown, made iconic on film by the brilliant Christopher Lloyd, is going to be the adventure of a lifetime. After all, at this stage of my life, who doesn’t want to go back in time?”
