Where we're going, we don't need roads

Great Scott! Back To The Future is getting a musical makeover! The hit 80s franchise is the latest movie sensation to receive a musical adaptation and will be flying into Manchester in 2020! Back To The Future follows Marty McFly and kooky scientist Doc Brown as they travel through space and time, finding themselves in a series of mishaps, will these two time travelers ever find their way back home?

Conceived by the film's original creators (Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale), this brand new musical adaptation will be directed by John Rando with a book by Bob Gale. Original music and lyrics are provided by Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard alongside, the unforgettable tunes from the movie (including 'The Power Of Love' and 'Johnny B Goode').

Power up the Delorean!

Originally released in 1985, Zemeckis and Gale's science-fiction creation became an overnight sensation. Grossing over $381 million worldwide Back To the Future became the highest-grossing film of the year. Due to its success, a further two Back To The Future films were released, Part II in 1989 and Part III in 1990. The beloved movie is still a pop-culture icon with the likes of Secret Cinema and independent picture houses regularly celebrating the '80s classic.
