Go on an electrifying ride through time with ‘Back to the Future Musical’

In the 1985 movie Back to the Future (BTF), 17-year-old high school student Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) accidentally travels back in time from 1985 to 1955 through Dr. Emmett Brown’s DeLorean time machine. Now, McFly’s mission is to convince Doc that he is from the future while making sure that no one comes between his teenage parents’ relationship.

The movie became the highest-grossing film of 1985, pulling in over $38o million at the box office. After years of development, the musical adaptation of BTF finally began performances last February then will continue until May 17, 2020, at the Manchester Opera House.

London Theatre Reviews’ official Facebook page shared some photos from the production led by Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis, the film’s original creative team.
