About the show
Please note that this is a rumoured production. Any information on dates, casting and venue are subject to change
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 brilliant but 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, threatening his very existence. With the clock ticking, he must make sure they get together, while working with a younger Doc Brown to fix the Delorean so he can travel back to the future.
This musical adaptation features a book by Bob Gale, co-writer of the film. Music and lyrics are provided by Emmy and Grammy Award-winner, Alan Silvestri and six-time Grammy Award-winner, Glen Ballard. Classic tunes from the film will also feature, such as The Power of Love and Johnny B. Goode.
Casting for the London transfer is yet to be announced. The Manchester cast includes Tony Award-winner Roger Bart (You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown) as Doc Brown, Olly Dobson (Bat Out of Hell) as Marty, screen actor and comedian Hugh Coles as George McFly and Rosanna Hyland (Urinetown) as ‘Lorraine Baines.
One of the biggest hit movies of the 80s is now set to be a West End smash. The London venue has not yet been announced, so be sure to add this show to your wishlist to stay informed.
