    About the Back to the Future musical

    The musical is based on the hit Universal Studios/Amblin Entertainment film of the same name that was created by Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis.

    The story follows 80s teenybopper Marty McFly who has mistakenly transported back in time to the year 1955 thanks to a new time-travelling DeLorean invented by his somewhat-crazy friend Dr Brown. Before Marty can return to his own time in 1985, he must first ensure that his high-schooler parents fall in love, or he may very well cease to exist.

    The musical features new music and lyrics by Grammy and Emmy Award winner Alan Silvestri and six-time Grammy Award winner Glen Ballard plus a book by Gale Zemeckis. The songs "The Power of Love" and "Johnny B Goode" from the film have also made their way into the musical.
