Great Scott! Join Casey Likes as he prepares for the gala performance of Back To The Future The Musical here on Broadway.

"Right before I go onstage, I remember what that movie was to me as a kid, and how Michael [J. Fox] has inspired me growing up. And I just hope for the best! I'm having so much fun, and it really feels like because of the family that raised me on Almost Famous, this time I'm able to know what I'm doing a little bit more." On his KYLE’LYK look styled by Jake Sokoloff, Likes says, “I love that adventurous kind of style. I like to do something that is different, that isn't just a suit."

Check out his day backstage at the Winter Garden below to see his final look, learn about his family ties to Broadway, and his connection to Michael J. Fox, plus more!

Casey plays Marty McFly in Back to the Future, based on the 1985 movie of the same name. It is currently playing at the Winter Garden Theatre.

What might surprise you, is the "biggest development in [Likes'] career in the past three years," is his ability to now grow hair on his face and body - to the extent he now shaves every day before going on for Marty!

The musical features a score by Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard, and book by Bob Gale (co-creator of the Back to the Future franchise), with direction by John Rando, and choreography by Chris Bailey.

The cast includes Roger Bart, Hugh Coles, Liana Hunt, Jelani Remy, Nathaniel Hackmann, Merritt David Janes, Mikaela Secada, Amber Ardolino, Will Branner, Victoria Byrd, Brendon Chan, Kevin Curtis, Nick Drake, Samuel Gerber, Marc Heitzman, Kimberly Immanuel, Joshua Kenneth Allen Johnson, Hannah Kevitt, JJ Niemann, Becca Petersen, Emma Pittman, Jonalyn Saxer, Blakely Slaybaugh, Gabi Stapula, and Daryl Tofa.
