Back To The Future hits the West End, from the Daily Mail
Holy rock ’n’ roll! Back To The Future is being turned into a stage musical and will open in the West End next year, the 30th anniversary of the film’s release.
The movie, which made Michael J. Fox a star, has been under consideration for theatre treatment for a decade.
Bob Gale, who wrote the 1985 film and its two sequels, said he and the film’s director Robert Zemeckis discussed the project with various theatrical folk, but nothing clicked until they met London-based director Jamie Lloyd and producer Colin Ingram.
