About Back to the Future

Great Scott!

Oh and yes: there is a flying DeLorean. Discover “The Power of Love”, and book Back to the Future: The Musical tickets on TodayTix.

The Back to the Future musical has all of the film's thrilling action and comedy, plus a fantastic score. It features the beloved songs used in the movie, as well as all-new toe-tappers from Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard.

The musical became a smash hit with both critics and audiences, winning the 2022 Olivier Award for Best New Musical. London Theatre raved about the show, saying "sci-fi and theatre blend to create genuine magic," so strap in for an unforgettable theatre ride!

The original Back to the Future landed in cinemas in 1985, starring Michael J Fox as cool skateboarding teen Marty McFly. When his eccentric scientist pal Emmett “Doc” Brown accidentally transports Marty to the 1950s, he must find a way to get his parents together, change his family’s destiny, and return to the future.

More information about Back to the Future

Back to the Future fans will be pleased to know that Bob Gale, who co-wrote the movie and its sequels with Robert Zemeckis, is also the book writer for the musical version, while Zemeckis is a co-creator. Glen Ballard joins Bob Gale for all the sci-fi fun.

Ballard collaborated on the Back to the Future score with composer Alan Silvestri. Silvestri supplied the music for numerous Robert Zemeckis films: Forrest Gump, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and The Polar Express. The two-time Academy Award nominee also composed for movies such as The Bodyguard, The Parent Trap and the Avengers films.

John Rando directs the Back to the Future West End production. He's a Tony Award winner for Urinetown the Musical and a nominee for his Broadway revival of On the Town. He assembled a crack creative team, and together they crank up the speed to 88 miles per hour and make the impossible happen live on stage.

What to Watch For:

  • Time travel is a big inspiration to the show’s composers, who also reflect on some of the emotional elements of time – like wondering what your future holds. Several of the song titles refer to time in some way. As always, Doc Brown has a more offbeat view, as you’ll see in his number “21st Century”.
  • Listen out for your favourite songs from the Back to the Future movie, too. They include “Earth Angel” and Chuck Berry’s rollicking “Johnny B Goode” at the dance where Marty’s parents must get together, plus “The Power of Love” – a number one hit for Huey Lewis and the News.
  • Reflecting the movie’s mix of genres (sci-fi, comedy, romance, adventure), the musical’s score embraces different styles – from 1950s doo-wop through to 1980s rock, plus some traditional musical theatre balladry and a standout gospel number for the future mayor Goldie Wilson, “Gotta Start Somewhere”.
