Grab your skateboard. Stock up on plutonium. And turn the ignition on your DeLorean because Back to the Future The Musical is landing in the West End. Based on the iconic 1985 film starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, Back to the Future The Musical is bringing the beloved movie to the stage for the first time.
The story follows high schooler Marty McFly, who just wants to ride around town on his skateboard. When his friend and experimental scientist Dr. Emmett Brown reveals his latest invention, a time-travelling DeLorean, Marty finds himself caught in a high-speed chase that accidentally lands him back in 1955. Once he’s there, he meets his high school-aged parents, but his meddling with time begins to threaten his own existence. Marty finds Doc Brown and together, they bend the rules of time to save each other.
The film’s screenwriters Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis, who also directed the trilogy, co-created the musical, and Gale contributed the show’s book alongside Glen Ballard and Alan Silvestri, who wrote original music and lyrics. The musical’s score also features hits from the film including “The Power of Love" and “Johnny B. Goode.” John Rando directs the production, with choreography by Chris Bailey.
Back to the Future The Musical had its world premiere at the Manchester Opera House in February 2020, but its initial run was cut short due to the Covid-19 theatrical shutdowns. The show received early positive buzz from fans of the film franchise.
Back to the Future The Musical opened at the Adelphi Theatre in the West End in August 2021. Book your tickets to Back to the Future The Musical today. No flux capacitor required.
