Reviews are in for Back To The Future The Musical starring Roger Bart & Olly Dobson at the Adelphi Theatre in London.

This movie-to-stage musical adaptation has been highly anticipated (understatement!), and alongside the joy of getting to see a classic 80’s movie live on stage, the West End is also treated to Broadway stage royalty Roger Bart (The Producers) giving us his Dr Emmett Brown!

Overall the reviews are mixed and the show seems to polarise critics, , with some absolutely five-star lovin’ it, and others feeling that the big set pieces (namely the car) dominate over songs and book. Which may also come down to whether you know and love the movie or you don’t.

Michael J Fox has paid tribute to the new stage adaptation of Back To The Future The Musical, which opens in London tonight.

“I’m buzzing from what is a truly great show. It captures the entire BTTF Experience through  sensational casting, effective story edits, great Techwork & Special FX  The actors were impeccable, with an energy and passion  commensurate  with us originals.  And the music is freaking great, from the Huey Lewis songs to the Silvestri score and all the new songs and set pieces. It really is a small miracle.  Congratulations to all of the amazing people involved. It looks like a hit to me!” said Michael J Fox.

American actor Roger Bart (The Producers, Desperate Housewives) and Olly Dobson play the roles of ‘Dr Emmett Brown’ and ‘Marty McFly’ respectively. Hugh Coles performs as ‘George McFly’, Rosanna Hyland as ‘Lorraine Baines’, Cedric Neal as ‘Goldie Wilson’, Aidan Cutler as ‘Biff Tannen’, Courtney-Mae Briggs as ‘Jennifer Parker’, Will Haswell as ‘Dave McFly’, Emma Lloyd as ‘Linda McFly’ and Mark Oxtoby as ‘Strickland’.

Chenoweth’s role has not been announced but she joins Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, Stanley Tucci and Chris Rock in the highly anticipated comedy.

Italian actress Eugenia Caruso, British comedian Morgana Robinson and Charles Edwards are also in the film.

The story follows a little boy who, whilst staying with his grandmother at a hotel, stumbles across a conference of witches plotting to kill children, and gets transformed into a mouse by the Grand High Witch.

Zemeckis, best known for directing the Back to the Future franchise starring Michael J Fox, Forrest Gump with Tom Hanks and Romancing The Stone with Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner, filmed the fantasy comedy at Warner Bros. Studio in Hertfordshire and on location in Surrey in the UK and in Alabama, Georgia in 2019.

Back To The Future musical to open in West End

Back To The Future The Musical is coming to London’s West End theatre-land in a spectacular new stage adaptation.

Based on the classic 80s film franchise starring Michael J Fox, the musical follows Marty McFly, a rock ‘n’ roll teenager who is accidentally transported back in time, but before he can return to 1985 he must make sure his high school-aged parents fall in love in order to save his own existence.

West End actor Olly Dobson (Bat Out Of Hell The Musical, Matilda) has been cast in the lead role of Marty McFly with further casting to be announced.

Bob Gale, who co-wrote the films, has written the booking alongside a world-class creating team including new music and lyrics by Emmy and Grammy Award-winning Alan Silvestri and six-time Grammy Award-winning Glen Ballard and direction by Tony Award-winning  John Rando.

The production will tread a familiar path of new musicals with a short 12-week run in Manchester in February 2020 followed by a full West End season later in the year.

Back to the Future the movie was released in 1985 and grossed $360.6 million (£279 million) at the box office worldwide and the total box office for all three films in the Back to the Future franchise was $936.6 million (over $1.8 billion in today’s money).

The musical stage adaptation has been in the works for many years, but  Bob Gale, who wrote the film with Robert Zemeckis and who is writing the book for the musical said, “Bob Zemeckis and I have been trying to get this project off the ground for years, but good things take time and finally, the time is right.“

Tickets for the Manchester run will go on-sale at 10:00am Friday 24 May 2019. Full dates and tickets for the London premiere to be announced.

UPDATE 8 September 2020: Back To The Future: The Musical will premiere at the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End from 14 May 2021.

Jamie Lloyd drops out of Back To The Future Musical

Director Jamie Lloyd announces that he is no longer working on the musical version of Back to the Future.

Creative differences have led director Jamie Lloyd (Richard III, The Commitments, Urinetown) to drop-out of director duties on the forthcoming movie-to-stage musical remake of Back to the Future.

Workshops are due to start any time now, but Jamie Lloyd has decided to withdraw amicably from the project over differences with original Back to the Future screenwriter Bob Gale.

Jamie Lloyd told Baz in the Daily Mail that he needed to “stand by my vision… or there’s not much point”.

It looks like the musical is now going to be pushed back until 2016. It is not clear whether Soutra Gilmour’s designs for the show will be used for the final production.

  1. I saw this in Manchester on one of the first nights. This was the best stage production I’ve ever seen. Incredible. Characters were unbelievable. They were all so good but loved how George McFly captivated the audience from the first sentence onwards. I’m not even sure if he spoke or just laughed but I’ve he’s opened his mouth the audience’s knew they were in for a treat. Special effects were breathtaking. I recommended it to do many people but the current situation has prevented anybody from following it up. What’s going to happen with this? Do the accrued luck it up again when conditions allow? Can they remember most of their lines? Give me answers – I’d love to see this masterpiece again. Thank you to the actors, scriptwriters and production team.
