Back To The Future musical cast reunite for isolation performance of The Power Of Love
The cast of Back To The Future: The Musical has reunited in lockdown for a special performance.
Based on the iconic 1985 film of the same name, the Back to the Future musical started performances at the Manchester Opera House in February.
However performances, due to run until May 17, were cut short because of the ongoing theatre shutdown.
As the lockdown continues, the cast and orchestra from the show have shared a performance of The Power of Love by Huey Lewis and the News which features in both the original movie and musical adaption.
The group also spoke about the potential future of the musical, which was set for a West End transfer, saying: “Watch this space for future news!”
