Back to the Future: The Musical has further extended its run at the Adelphi Theatre until 22 December. The show also celebrates its 1000th performances in the West End today.

The Olivier Award-winning musical, which is based on the 1985 science-fiction comedy film starring Christopher Lloyd and Michael J Fox, follows teenager Marty McFly and his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown as they travel back in time in a modified DeLorean car.

The musical, which has a book by Bob Gale and music and lyrics by Emmy and Grammy Award winner Alan Silvestri and Grammy Award winner Glen Ballard, opened in London on 13 September 2021. The show had its official opening on Broadway on 3 August 2023, and there are plans to roll out the production internationally, including a North American tour and a production in Japan.

The West End production stars Cory English as Doc Brown and Ben Joyce as Marty McFly.

The creative team includes Tony Award-winning director John Rando, Tim Hatley (set and costume design), Tim Lutkin (lighting), Hugh Vanstone (lighting consultant), Gareth Owen (sound), and Finn Ross (video), with choreography by Chris Bailey, musical supervision and arrangements by Nick Finlow, and illusions by Chris Fisher.
