A Trip to the Theatre

Went to see Back To The Future The Musical at Manchester Opera House this week. As a musical it's fairly middling, but as a show it's great fun with a lot to like. It's funny, well-staged, and they recreate the film very well. The Delorean sequences are very well done, and it's very immersive. The leads are brilliant as Marty and Marty's dad while Roger Bart gets to riff a bit as Doc Brown, including having his own totally-unrelated song. I think the songwriting probably needs another pass, but as a night out it's very entertaining.
