About Back to the Future: The Musical

Great Scott! The iconic 80s sci-fi movie Back to the Future is now a spectacular West End hit musical, offering up 1.21 gigawatts of zany time-travelling adventure, jaw-dropping special effects and an uplifting rock score. Oh and yes: there is a flying DeLorean. Discover “The Power of Love” — and plutonium. Book Back to the Future: The Musical tickets in London 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 accidently transports Marty to the 1950s, he must find a way to get his parents together, change his family’s destiny, and get back to the future.

Tell Me More

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. Joining Gale is composer and producer Glen Ballard, who co-wrote Alanis Morissette’s album Jagged Little Pill and the Michael Jackson song “Man in the Mirror”, and co-created the West End and Broadway hit Ghost the Musical.

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

John Rando directs the Back to the Future West End production. He's a Tony Award winner for Urinetown the Musical and 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:

  • Roger Bart originates the role of Doc Brown. The Tony Award winner is known for originating roles in shows like The Producers and Young Frankenstein, and has also appeared on screen in Desperate Housewives, 30 Rock, Grace and Frankie, and Good Trouble.
  • 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”.
