Back to the Future to become a musical


Marty McFly and co. will be making their way to the West End, in a musical based on the cult classic film.

As part of the celebrations for the first film’s 30th anniversary, the musical will debut in the West End in 2015. The plan is that if the show is successful it will then get a run on Broadway.

The original director and co writer of the film Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale will write the production, while original composer Alan Silvestri will compose the music with Glen Ballard. The musical will also feature songs from the first movie, including ‘The Power of Love’ and ‘Johnny B. Goode’.

Back to the Future was first released in 1985, and featured Michael J Fox, and Christopher Lloyd, and has become a cult favourite, with its trademark Delorean, mad scientist and time travelling back to 1955.
