Get a new taste of the upcoming Back to the Future musical in the music video above, in which Cedric Neal performs “Gotta Start Somewhere.” The tune hails from songwriters Glen Ballard (Jagged Little Pill) and the original 1985 comedy’s composer Alan Silvestri.

Neal (The Voice UK, Broadway’s After Midnight) will play Mayor Goldie Wilson in the show’s world premiere, beginning February 20, 2020, at the Manchester Opera House. A West End bow is expected to follow.
