Dave Clark's TIME--The Musical opened on April 9th, 1986
in the Dominion Theatre in London's West End.
The original cast boast Sir Laurence Olivier and Sir Cliff Richard.
During the run Sir Cliff was replaced by David Cassidy.
Dave Clark, the author of TIME--The Musical is the
same Dave Clark from the 60's British band
The Dave Clark Five.
According to David Soames, who co-wrote the show:
"The law of probenation is a play on the word "probation" which is handed out to a criminal by the British courts, it means that they are on probation to behave themselves otherwise the court will call them back and impose a custodial sentence on said criminal for whatever crime they may have commited!"
The finale' song from TIME--The Musical is a song called "It's In Every One Of Us".
This song can also be heard near the end of the Tom Hanks movie "BIG", as he is looking at his
childhood friends and wishing to go back to his old life.
TIME--The Musical was designed by John Napier
(the designer for CATS and SUNSET BLVD)
who later went on to design the Siegfried and Roy magic show at the Mirage in Las Vegas.
Siegfried and Roy were such big fans of TIME--The Musical
they had their costumes for their own show fashioned
after the look of Melchisedic, The Time Lord from the London production.
