The classic film is brought to the stage in spectacular fashion, with effects that must be seen to be believed, songs from the film, and more exhilarating surprises than you could dream of at the Adelphi Theatre.

Winner of the Olivier Award for 'Best New Musical', this is an exhilarating ride that mixes nostalgia with cutting-edge technology for the wildest theatre ride ever.

About Back to the Future the Musical

When ‘80s teenager Marty McFly helps his friend - and possible mad scientist - Doc Brown with a brand new invention, he gets way more than he bargained for! Propelled back to the 1950s by a time-travelling DeLorean, Marty has to make sure his parents get together, otherwise, he might never exist at all…

This musical adaptation features a brand new score by Grammy winners Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard, as well as classic tunes from the film, such as "The Power of Love" and "Johnny B. Goode".

Back to the Future Adapted for the Stage

This turbo-charged musical boasts a fantastic creative team that makes the sci-fi film leap from screen to stage with mind-blowing success.

The show is written and adapted by Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis, who fans will recognise as the minds behind the original film franchise, and has music and lyrics by Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard. Silvestri is an Academy Award-nominated composer and long-time collaborator of Zemeckis’, and his extensive credits include Back to th Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and The Bodyguard.

Olivier Award-winning designer Tim Hatley (Life of Pi; Dreamgirls), choreographer Chris Bailey, video designer Finn Ross, illusion designer Chris Fisher, director John Rando, and many, many more have worked tirelessly to recreate the awe and excitement of the film’s biggest moments live on stage as if you are seeing them for the first time.

You will gaze in awe as the most iconic scenes are recreated using a state-of-the-art mix of lighting, projection, mechanical staging and all manner of technical wizardry!

Back to the Future Musical Awards

Audiences have loved it since it premiered in Manchester then flew down to the West End, and Back to the Future is a critical hit too! It won the 2022 Olivier Award for Best New Musical and was nominated for a further six including Best Actor in a Musical, Best Set Design and Best Original Score.

Rave reviews have praised it as “bombastic” (Time Out), with “gravity-defying effects” (The Guardian) and most importantly “with plenty of treats for fans” (Digital Spy)!

The show has even done some time-travelling of its own... back to Eastern Standard Time, in fact! Back to the Future premiered on Broadway in 2023 and quickly became one of the hottest tickets in NYC.

Back to the Future Musical Cast

The film’s iconic characters are brought to life with uncanny accuracy by a cast including Ben Joyce (Jersey Boys) as Marty McFly, Cory English as Doc Brown, Sarah Goggin (Sister Act) as Lorraine Baines McFly, and Oliver Nicholas as George McFly.

The original West End cast included Olly Dobson as Marty McFly and Tony Award winner Roger Bart as Doc Brown.

    Tickets FAQ

    How much are Back to the Future tickets?

    Ticket prices start at around £24 and can go as high as £180 depending on dates and availability.

    What are the most expensive tickets for Back to the Future the Musical?

    The most expensive tickets currently cost around £180 and are located in the centre of Stalls rows H-L and Dress Circle rows C-E.

    The best seats to watch this show from are in the middle of the Stalls, such as J22 . One SeatPlan member raves that this is one of the most expensive seats and “oh my was it worth it!”. From here, and similar seats including L21 have a fantastic view of both the special effects and acting, and you will be in prime position for the breathtaking finale.

    How can I get cheap tickets for Back to the Future?

    Many seats are between 15% and 25% cheaper at a midweek, off-peak performance compared to a weekend or school holiday performance. If you can be flexible, attending midweek is an easy way to save money. It is also worth checking availability a month or so before attending for the most choice across all price bands.

    Sometimes, prices drop if a seat is unsold close to the performance date. This is another handy way to save money if you can book last-minute tickets. If booking in advance, check cheaper seats at the side of Stalls rows D and G including D31 , or well-rated restricted view seats such as Dress Circle C5 .

    Discounts and exclusive prices are often available during big West End promotions and throughout the year. Sign up for an Alert and we can let you know about future offers.
