[DML] DeLorean in Broadway Musical?

Just thought I'd share this with the list - I was invited to the new 
musical production of 'The Wedding Singer' a few days ago.  (Yes - 
they actually made a musical of the movie, but it's not as bad as 
you might think!)  

The show is currently in pre-production here in Seattle before it 
goes to Broadway in New York City.  For the past couple of weeks, 
they bring in an audience to tweak the show based on reactions.  
They did an outstanding job on all the sets and numbers - lot's of 
special effects, lighting, musical numbers and, oh yes - the 
Delorean makes an appearance!  

They built a mock-up of just the front of the car with no 
windshield, roof or doors.  Just two seats where the actors sit 
while pretending to drive as the car approaches and backs out of 
stage.  For anyone else in the audience, it simply looked liked they 
chopped off the front end of the car and used it - but The scale was 
not exact, slightly smaller, but with front grill, DMC logo and 
working headlights. Most likely the stainless steel panels were 
actually painted or simulated, but from a distance it looked like 
the real thing.  They even used sound effects for the engine as the 
car pulls up and backs out (not an accurate recording of the engine -
 sounded like a chevy).  The car makes two major appearances during 
the show.  They also mention the car in dialog - 'know anyone who 
drives a Delorean?' and the film Back to the Future.  The show is 
set in 1985 so there's many references to everything 80's.

Too bad they couldn't use the real car - but as stage productions 
go, they did a great job.  I wish I could take pictures, but they 
don't allow photographs during performances.  I work near the 
theatre so I may try and contact the production to see if they have 
any photos.  If so, I'll post them here.
