"It's your cousin, Marvin Berry! You know that new version of Back to The Future you're looking for, with the entire movie reimagined as if it were a play written by William Shakespeare? Well, LISTEN TO THIS!" In the iconic film Back to the Future, Marty McFly travels from the 1980s to the 1950s, changing the path of his parents' destiny. Now fans of the movie can travel back even further...to the 16th century, where the Bard of Avon unveils his latest masterpiece: William Shakespeare's Get Thee Back to the Future! Every scene and line of dialogue from the hit is recreated here, with authentic Shakespearean rhyme, meter and stage directions, and with jokes and Easter eggs for movie fans and Shakespearean buffs alike. By the time you're finished reading, you'll be convinced that Shakespeare had a flux capacitor of his own, and traveled to our era so he could pen this time-tossed tale. A scene-by-scene retelling of Back to the Future, as if it were a play written by William Shakespeare. Written by Ian Doescher, author of the hugely popular Willam Shakespeare's Star Wars series, which included several NYT best sellers. Fans of the movie will love the inside jokes; academics and aficionados of the Bard will appreciate the legit Shakespearean content. Hidden surprises and lingusitic jokes add another level of entertainment. Who knew iambic pentameter could be so funny? Builds on the huge following established by Willam Shakespeare's Star Wars online and on social media. Includes interior illustrations. Officially licensed by Universal Studios.
