Back To The Future – The Musical Tickets
“Damn fun! It sends the crowd out on a massive high.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“Brings all the magic from the screen to the stage!” – Entertainment Weekly
“This is a future you don’t wanna miss!” – Lea Thompson
Watch Back To The Future: The Musical as it hits the Winter Garden Theatre this coming August, featuring memorable songs from the film like Huey Lewis’ “The Power of Love,” the electrifying rendition of “Johnny B. Goode,” and the smooth slow-dance of “Earth Angel.”
The musical does not deviate much from its source material as the adaptation follows the story that has intrigued viewers since its release in the early eighties. Like the movie, high schooler Marty McFly finds himself moving between decades thanks to a time-traveling DeLorean, and the only way for him to get back to the future is to make sure that his parents fall in love again. With this, he must blend the past, present, and future in an era where Calvin Klein and Rock ‘n Roll have yet to exist! Though it’s easier said than done, tampering with time has consequences, and audiences will surely see this in the upcoming Broadway retelling of the sci-fi movie.
Premiering years later than originally planned, previews of the Broadway show began in February 2020. After significant showings, The Guardian reported that fans of the franchise gave abundant positive reviews, with people commenting how “people are going to be talking about this for a long time” and another that it is “a wonderful tribute to the film.”
The Original West End production was nominated for seven Laurence Olivier Awards, including Best Original Score and Best Set Design, among others, and then went on to win Best New Musical. Later on, the show won Best Supporting Performer, Best Lighting Design, and Best Video Design from the WhatsOnStage Awards.
