Great Scott! Back to the Future in London!
Marty McFly is a typical rock ‘n’ roll teenager. Typical, that is until he is accidentally transported back to 1955 by his friend Dr Emmett Brown’s time-travelling DeLorean. Before he can make his way back to 1985, where he belongs, Marty needs to guarantee that his high-school-aged parents fall in love, or he might not have a future to go back to.
Who is starring in Back to the Future at the Adelphi Theatre?
The Back to the Future original London cast will star Roger Bart as Dr. Emmett Brown and Olly Dobson (Bat Out of Hell, Matilda) as Marty McFly, reprising their roles from the Manchester run. They are joined by co-stars Aidan Cutler as Biff Tannen, Cedric Neal (Chess) as Goldie Wilson, Courtney Mae-Briggs as Jennifer Parker, Hugh Coles (The Festival) as George McFly, and Rosanna Hyland (Sister Act) as Lorraine Baines.
The History of Back to the Future
The beloved 1985 film Back to the Future would take the world by storm and eventually become the head of a franchise entailing 2 more films, a television series, theme park ride and video games. Besides being the highest-grossing film of the year, Back to the Future was an awards darling earning multiple Academy Award, BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations and coming away with a Hugo Award a Saturn Award and an Academy Award.
Back to the Future introduced us to characters and actors who still hold a place in our hearts today. Christopher Lloyd, who played Doc Brown, and star Michael J Fox, who played Marty McFly are household names, in large part due to the success of the franchise. Back to the Future the musical was initially set to premiere in London’s West End in 2015, in celebration of the film’s 30-year anniversary, however, the show’s premiere date was pushed back several times until the project finally came back to life for its 2020 world premiere in Manchester.
