Our Review 4 / 5

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. Back to the Future: The Musical tickets are available on London Theatre now.

Back to the Future: The Musical 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 movie's two sequels, co-created the musical. 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 September 2021. Book your tickets to Back to the Future: The Musical in London today — or yesterday. No flux capacitor required.

Our Review of Back to the Future: The Musical


​​Great Scott! Roger Bart, whose positive Covid test kept him from opening night earlier this month, is once again bringing his 1.21 gigawatts of zany energy to Doc Brown. I went back to Back to the Future to see Bart in action (after catching his understudy Mark Oxtoby), and, in both versions of the time-space-actor continuum, enjoyed a show that is, indisputably, a fantastic night out.

Monday, 13 September, 2021, 16:36
If any show might be expected to engage in a spot of dramatic time-hopping, it’s Back to the Future: The Musical. The production is having its highly anticipated West End opening tonight, but with a change of personnel: leading man Roger Bart will have to wait a bit longer to give us his Doc Brown after testing positive for Covid. Fear not, though. The show will go on, with understudy Mark Oxtoby stepping into the role of the eccentric scientist for the first time this...
‘Back to the Future: The Musical’ star Olly Dobson is ready to up the ante onstage
Wednesday, 17 March, 2021, 17:40
Olly Dobson is one of Back to the Future’s biggest fans, so it’s been a dream come true to step into the shoes (and onto the skateboard) of the time-travelling teenager Marty McFly in the new stage adaptation, which is set to open at the Adelphi Theatre in the West End in August. But to make this iconic character really sing, both literally and figuratively, onstage, Dobson has to take things up a notch. “The ante has to be up,” Dobson says of translating the beloved...

Back to the Future The Musical writer and producer on bringing the story to the stage
Thursday, 10 September, 2020, 08:05
Bob Gale has been dreaming about Back to the Future. The acclaimed screenwriter of the celebrated film franchise penned the book for the new musical adaptation of the classic movie, but when the out-of-town tryout had to close early due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Gale found his subconscious taking him back to Hill Valley. “For the first six weeks I was back in the States after we had to close, I was dreaming about this show every single night,” he said. “Now that we're...
Roger Bart on reimagining Doc Brown in Back to the Future The Musical
Thursday, 10 September, 2020, 08:00
Many actors would shudder at the idea of recreating one of the most-beloved film roles of all time onstage. The kind of role that has become so synonymous with the actor who originated it, that it seems impossible to separate the two. Well, the was the challenge Roger Bart faced when he took on the role of Dr. Emmett Brown in Back to the Future The Musical, a character made so memorable by Christopher Lloyd in the film trilogy. “How does one fill the shoes of the...
