Back To The Future Is Brought To Life On Stage At This New Manchester Show

The new show has flown into Manchester for 12 weeks!

Time-travel back to the 80’s with the brand new Back To The Future The Musical – which has officially landed at the Manchester Opera House (in 2020, thankfully!).

In town for a limited time only, fans can revisit the classic film in this musical adaptation, bringing to life the iconic story of Marty McFly. The show will take fans on a wild ride back in time, inspired by the cult phenomenon. Similarly to the movie, the show follows Marty McFly as he’s accidentally transported to 1955 in a time-travelling DeLorean invented by friend Dr Emmett Brown. Before he can return to the 80’s, Marty must make sure his high-school parents fall in love with each other to protect his own existence.

Theatre fans can check out the show before 17 May, with tickets on sale now. Starring Roger Bart as Dr Emmett Brown and Olly Dobson as Marty McFly, the production has some serious talent behind it – also snapping up Tony award-winning director John Rando and a Grammy-winning team behind the music. The production includes all-new music for fans to enjoy, as well as some of the best tracks from the movie itself, including Johnny B. Goode and The Power of Love. The show has already racked up some rave reviews, with some saying it’s “one of the best things I’ve seen on stage”. Bold praise!

Following its stint in Manchester, the show will teleport to London’s West End featuring the same cast and team for our pals in London to enjoy.

Back To The Future was released in 1985 starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, and grossed a whopping $360m at the worldwide box office. To this day, the movie is considered a classic film and is still enjoyed by film fans everywhere.
