The production team for Back to the Future The Musical have announced the release of the first single off the show's upcoming cast album, "Back In Time", for your auditory pleasure! The beloved song, adapted for the musical from the film's original soundtrack, is perhaps best known for its feel-good vibes and nostalgic 80s sound.

Back to the Future rides into the West End fresh from a warm reception in Manchester
Having been met with overwhelmingly positive reviews for its world premiere in Manchester, the Back to the Future musical is set to hit London's Adelphi Theatre at 88mph this May! The show features new music by multi-Grammy Award winners Alan Silvestri and Glen Ballard alongside some old favourites from the original movie.
Back to the Future Adelphi Theatre creative team and cast
The eagerly awaited musical is based on the film of the same name co-created by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale and is produced in London's West End by Colin Ingram (Ghost The Musical). The cast is directed by Tony Award winner John Rando (Urinetown, On The Town) and will see Roger Bart and Olly Dobson reprise their roles from the Manchester Opera House as Dr Emmett Brown and Marty McFly respectively. Bart and Dobson are to be joined onstage by their co-stars Rosanna Hyland as Lorraine Baines, Hugh Coles as George McFly, Cedric Neal as Goldie Wilson, Aidan Cutler as Biff Tannen, and Courtney-Mae Briggs as Jennifer Parker.
The stage show features set and costume design by Tim Hatley, lighting design by Tim Lutkin (with lighting consultant Hugh Vanstone), sound design by Gareth Owen, and video design by Finn Ross. The creative team also has choreographer Chris Bailey, musical supervisor in charge of arrangements Nick Finlow, and Illusions director Chris Fisher. Orchestrations are from Bryan Crook and Ethan Popp, with dance arrangements by David Chase and casting by David Grindrod Associates.
Back to the Future Day celebrations now underway!

The hit musical will arrive at the Adelphi Theatre in London on 14 May 2021 after a long, hard wait and die-hard fans couldn't be more excited!
