Great Scott! It’s time for “perfect musical escapism” (Metro) with the multi-award winning Back to the Future The Musical. The 1985 blockbuster film and pop culture phenomenon is electrifying audiences and critics alike.

When Marty McFly finds himself transported back to 1955 in a time machine built by the eccentric scientist Doc Brown, he accidentally changes the course of history. Now he’s in a race against time to fix the present, escape the past and send himself… back to the future.

Experience this “high-voltage comedy” (Metro) and “feelgood triumph” (Telegraph) as the iconic story is adapted for the stage by the movie’s creators Bob Gale (Back to the Future trilogy) and Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump). Directed by Tony Award-winning John Rando, this “all-out spectacle” (The Stage) will make you think the DeLorean car is actually “defying the laws of theatre” (Guardian).

Back to the Future the Musical 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.

“It’s a total blast” says the Metro, because when this baby hits 88mph, it “zaps the audience between the eyes and ears to a roar of delight” (Variety).

When Back to the Future The Musical hits 88mph, you’re gonna see some serious… entertainment.
