In our social media age, selfies outside the theatre are de rigueur. Outside the Adelphi after Back to the Future, a man waited patiently for my friends and me to finish our group gurning in front of the show poster.
On LoveLondonLoveCulture, Emma Clarendon rounds up the reviews for screen-to-stage musical, now receiving its West End premiere at the Adelphi Theatre.
The arrival of a trio of splashy big new musicals in the West End at roughly the same time – the others being Frozen and the ALW Cinderella – feels both like a brave move by producers but also, most importantly, a triumphant V sign (and I don’t necessarily mean ‘victory’) to the pandemic and the chaos, misery and uncertainty it has caused.
Featuring 18 West End musicals, The Show Must Go On is a concert to remember, featuring a whole host of theatrical talent both on and off the stage.
Back To The Future The Musical’s performances at London’s Adelphi Theatre will now begin on 20 August 2021. The musical’s out-of-town opening at Manchester Opera House in March 2020 closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic exactly a year ago.
Producer Colin Ingram (Ghost – The Musical) and Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale (creators of the Back To The Future film trilogy) have announced that Back To The Future The Musical will transfer to the West End’s Adelphi Theatre, previewing from 14 May 2020, following an out-of-town opening at Manchester Opera House in March 2020.
Olly Dobson is amazing in Back to the Future. He sounds, looks and even has the mannerisms of Marty, the portrayal is so well done I don’t think anyone else could have done a better job.
The reviews are in for the world premiere of this new musical based on the hit film Back to the Future.
Back To The Future The Musical will open at the Manchester Opera House on 20 February 2020 for a strictly limited 12-week season, finishing on 17 May, prior to transferring to the West End.
