Back to The Future the Musical description
You remember the Universal Pictures/Amblin Entertainment film, Back to the Future? Now it's been made into a brand new stage musical with a book by Bob Gale and fresh new show tunes by the Emmy and Grammy Award-winning Alan Silvestri, plus the six-time Grammy Award-winning Glen Ballard. As if that wasn't brilliant enough, there are extra tunes from the movie itself, including of course The Power of Love.
Direction comes from the Tony-winning director John Rando, who blew audiences away with Urinetown and On The Town. And a dazzlingly good award winning design team is responsible for the look and feel of the new show, including sets and costumes by Tim Hatley, lighting by Hugh Vanstone, sound from Gareth Owen and video from Finn Ross. The choreography comes from Chris Bailey, and you'll love the clever optical illusions from Paul Kieve.
So who stars in this very special new production? You've got Olly Dobson playing Marty McFly, an actor who has thrilled us with his West End work in Bat Out Of Hell The Musical, and of course Matilda. The rest of the cast, for now, is under wraps.
The 1985 film starred Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly and Christopher Lloyd as the eccentric Dr Emmett Brown. The original film earned a whopping £279 million worldwide and all three movies in the series managed to coin an absolutely awe-inspiring amount in total. This is an incredibly popular story.
Just in case you're new to it, here's the plot. When teenager Marty McFly gets accidentally transported back to 1955 in a time-travelling DeLorean car made by his crazy inventor friend, Dr Emmett Brown, he ends up having to make sure his own parents fall in love at high school, to save his own existence.
By all accounts everyone involved in the original movies is really excited about the new show. As the Producer Colin Ingram said, “This show has been six years in the making and we are delighted to be showing it to the people of Manchester first before the rest of the world gets to see it. As I did with Ghost – The Musical, Manchester gets it first, so synchronize your watches because, when this musical hits 88 mph, you’re going to see some serious…entertainment!”

I'm afraid I was underwhelmed by this production, mainly due to the music. On a personal note I found "Marty's" singing incompressible and much of the music I knew out of tune, indeed "The Power of Love" was painful to my ears!

I got tickets for my daughters birthday, she grew up on ”Back to the future”. I was not expecting to like the show as much as I did, it was excellent and held my attention from start to finish. There was not one part of the show that dipped and George Mc fly was simply hilarious. Well done to all the cast, they all sang and danced their hearts out. The effects were amazing, All in all great night out.

The show was fantastic from start to end. The special effects were amazing!! I went around to the stage door after and got to meet Roger Bart - he was so so lovely, he chatted to me for a few minutes and let me take some photos with him. I can’t believe how friendly he was, a true gentleman. I’m mostly a fan of his from Desperate Housewives!! It’s an experience I’ll never forget. Thank you Roger!!

Loved the show but these tickets were so expensive. It wasn’t clear when buying them that the price was per seat although it showed all 3 seat numbers. Very misleading, and stupidly I didn’t look at the total when paying, as presumed it was the price advertised. So annoyed with myself and disappointed that they can charge this amount. Money I couldn’t really afford. Buy from another vendor!!

This show sticks fairly closely to the storyline from the original film so no surprises. The music is a bit hit and miss and the songs are for the large part instantly forgettable. There are no big original numbers and leaving aside the couple of well known hits you won't leave the theatre humming a tune. The singing voices are good but not great with the exception of Cedric Neal (Goldie Wilson) and Aidan Cutler (Biff) who can definitely carry a song. The sets are a bit claustrophobic and unimaginative not helped by the rather cramped venue. The main draw here is the lighting/ special effects which cheer up an otherwise fairly mediocre show. These are not exactly cutting edge though and some will be a tad disappointed particularly with the rather jerky flying car. This show will probably run for six months or so on the back of the film's huge success but there aren't many reasons why I would want to see this again.
