The BFI has announced a special online discussion with members of the cast and crew of the upcoming West End musical.
Available to watch for free on the BFI’s Youtube channel on April the 29th April at 7pm, the online discussion will see a panel comprised of Bob Gale, who, as well as co-writing the original trilogy, has written the book for the musical, and multi award winning composer Alan Silverstri, who has written new music and lyrics for the show alongside six-time Grammy award winner Glen Ballard. They will be joined on the panel by key cast and creatives from the show including producer Colin Ingram, director John Rando and actors Olly Dobson (Marty McFly), Rosanna Hyland (Lorraine Baines), Cedric Neal (Goldie Wilson / Marvin Berry) and Courtney-Mae Briggs (Jennifer Parker).
During the event, the panel will discuss how they went about adapting the hit film for the musical stage, what they did to make the story relevant to a new audience and what one studio executive wanted the film to be called before Steven Spielberg stepped in.
Back to the Future the Musical will head to the Adelphi Theatre from the 20th August 2021.To book tickets click here or visit: Love Theatre.com, From the Box Office, Encore Tickets, London Theatre Direct, Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk and Last Minute.com.
