Great Scott! Jump back to the 1980s, then the 1950s and right back tot he 1980s again in one evening with this musical adaption of the world famous movie.
The film, starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, needs no introduction. It has delighted entire families since it first hit the screen in 1985. Marty McFly teams up with the eccentric Doc Brown to test a time-travelling Delorean that transports Marty back to 1955. Stuck in the past, Marty accidentally prevents his high-school-aged parents from meeting, and threatens his very existence. With the clock ticking, he must make sure they get together and have that fateful kiss, all while working with a younger Doc Brown to fix the Delorean so he can travel back to the future.
The blockbuster film and pop culture phenomenon arrives in London's West End as a groundbreaking new musical adventure.
Adapting this for the stage are the movie’s creators Bob Gale (Back to the Future trilogy) and Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump).
Gale says that the production, directed by John Rando, showcases “groundbreaking stagecraft, which we firmly believe raises the bar for production design and illusion. You will be convinced that the DeLorean really does go 88 miles per hour.”
The production features original music by multi-Grammy winners Alan Silvestri (Avengers: Endgame) and Glen Ballard (Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror), alongside hit songs from the movie including The Power of Love, Johnny B Goode, Earth Angel and Back in Time.
The Back to the Future original London cast will star Roger Bart as Dr. Emmett Brown and Olly Dobson (Bat Out of Hell, Matilda) as Marty McFly, reprising their roles from the Manchester run. They are joined by co-stars Aidan Cutler as Biff Tannen, Cedric Neal (Chess) as Goldie Wilson, Courtney Mae-Briggs as Jennifer Parker, Hugh Coles (The Festival) as George McFly, and Rosanna Hyland (Sister Act) as Lorraine Baines.
One of the biggest hit movies of the 1980s is set to be a West End hit at the Adelphi Theatre.
