Back to the Future the musical is one of the newest and hottest musicals in London's West End. Don't miss out on tickets to this time-travelling adventure as it soars into the Adelphi Theatre, with spectacular songs, tense action, and spell-binding special effects that make that legendary car actually fly.
London's critics showered this hit production with warm reviews: the Evening Standard called it "enormous fun" while The Guardian reckoned that "the car's the star", saving praise for the show's replica DeLorean.
Back to the Future the Musical follows Marty McFly, a normal 80s teenage boy in a normal American town who just so happens to be friends with mad scientist Dr Emmett Brown. He takes a spin in Dr Emmett Brown's flying car and finds himself transported way back into the past, to 1955, when his parents first met. Suddenly, he finds that he has to help them fall in love, otherwise he'll disappear out of history altogether.
Back to the Future the Musical brings this story to life in the West End with rock'n'roll inspired songs and plenty of silliness. Bob Gale, who wrote the original 1985 movie this show is based on, wrote the book, alongside new music and lyrics by Emmy and Grammy Award-winning Alan Silvestri and six-time Grammy Award-winning Glen Ballard. There are also classic songs from the 1980s and 1950s included in the show, like 'Johnny B Goode' and 'The Power of Love', for maximum authentic retro atmosphere. The Back to the Future musical is directed by Tony Award-winning director John Rando (Urinetown, On The Town).
The cast of Back to the Future the Musical includes Olly Dobson (Bat Out of Hell, Matilda) as Marty McFly, alongside Roger Bart as as Dr. Emmett Brown. They are joined by Aidan Cutler as Biff Tannen, Cedric Neal as Goldie Wilson, Courtney Mae-Briggs as Jennifer Parker, Hugh Coles as George McFly, and Rosanna Hyland as Lorraine Baines.
Don't miss out on tickets to this hit musical: there's a lot of wizardry going on behind the scenes to make sure it looks as good as it sounds. Back to the Future is a night out you'll want to rewind the clock on and relive, again and again.
