Updated: Apr 23, 2023

Welcome to Hill Valley! Take an electrifying ride back in time as the 1985 blockbuster film and pop culture phenomenon arrives in London’s West End as a groundbreaking new musical adventure!

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.

Adapting this iconic story for the stage are the movie’s creators Bob Gale (Back to the Future trilogy) and Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump). The production 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.

Tony® Award-winning director John Rando leads the Tony® and Olivier Award-winning creative team.

"Great Scott! If you love the movie as much as I do, the musical is a must. Even the foyer of the theatre is BTTF themed and the music played before and after the show as well as the interval is 80s and 50s. The Delorien is amazing! You do think it’s going 88mph on that stage! The actors were great, and the new songs really catchy!

If you ever get the chance to see it….do."

Stewart - ★★★★★

"One of the best shows I've ever seen! The effects and projections and the ability to make a car look like it's speeding around a stage are outstanding (not to mention that wink to Part II at the end!)

The cast are all brilliant and play the whole thing out with fantastic energy. This is one of those rare cases where a stage show not only is an outstanding love letter to the original movie, but dare I say it, almost surpasses it in entertainment value! Outstanding! If you get the chance to see it then don't miss it!"
