The Back to the Future Musical is 1.2 gigawatts of time-travelling fun!

Truly a story for all time – Back to the Future is one of the most cherished, feel-good movies of the 80s. Now, thanks to a passionate and skilled team of theatre practitioners, it has been turned into a spectacular, high-energy musical that is guaranteed to please all ages at the Adelphi Theatre. Strap in, hold tight and prepare to be transported to the sci-fi musical of your dreams in the West End! 

The Back to the Future musical tells the story of small-town teenager Marty McFly, who is unexpectedly thrown back in time to the 1950s when he helps eccentric scientist Doc Brown with an experiment gone wrong. He lands right in the middle of his parents’ high school years, and realises that he has to work hard to make sure they fall in love – otherwise he’ll never exist at all! With all the iconic moments from the film translated to the stage, this show is a must-see for all fans of the film. Memorable scenes such as the Delorean racing through time and the Enchantment Under the Sea dance are all brought to life like never before. 

Back to the Future and its two sequels make up one of the best-loved science fiction franchises ever, with a fantastic mix of drama, humour, music and cool special effects. If you couldn’t get enough of Marty and Doc Brown’s adventures on the big screen, you will love this jaw-dropping musical that channels the essence of the story with even more spectacular effects and wild surprises! The characters you love from the movie are all brought to the stage by a hugely talented cast, along with iconic tunes such as “Johnny B. Goode” and “The Power of Love”. 

The musical is a brilliant, faithful adaptation with a book by Bob Gale, who co-wrote the film. Additional music and lyrics are by Grammy Award-winners, Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard that make the West End rock like the 1980s! Director John Rando turbo-charges the story into an exhilarating live experience with design by Tim Hatley, choreography by Chris Bailey, lighting by Tim Lutkin, video design by Finn Ross, sound design by Gareth Owen and illusion design by Chris Fisher

When it opened at The Opera House, Manchester in February 2020, the Back to the Future musical was met with huge acclaim from audiences. It transferred to the West End in 2021 and has been an instant hit, winning the Olivier Award for Best New Musical in 2022. As it continues its London run, it has also transferred to Broadway with original Doc Brown Roger Bart reprising his role for the New York premiere.

The cast of Back to the Future in the West End currently includes Tony Award-winner Cory English (The Producers; Young Frankenstein) as Doc Brown, Ben Joyce (Jersey Boys) as Marty McFly, Sarah Goggin as Lorraine Baines, Oliver Nicholas as George McFly, Jay Perry as Goldie Wilson/Marvin Berry, Sophie Naglik as Jennifer Parker, Jordan Pearson as Biff Tannen, Lee Ormsby as Strickland and Patricia Wilkins as Linda McFly. 

Unless you can generate the 1.21 gigawatts needed to actually travel back through time, this is a West-End spectacular that you do not want to miss! Catch the Back to the Future musical like, yesterday as it continues to wow theatregoers at the Adelphi Theatre.
