Commentaires : This show had cost a staggering £4 million and embraced a circular stage that tilted upwards into the vertical plane, and contained batteries of lights, stroboscopes and lasers turning the whole auditorium into a “sensuround galaxy”.
The sound-system was intended to set all the seats vibrating to simulate the lift-off of a rocket into outer-space.
Laurence Olivier appeared as a hologram inside a giant floating egg which opened at various intervals to comment upon the need for Truth.
After the first year the Cliff Richard role was taken over by David Cassidy, and then later by David Ian.
The show ran for two years but failed to break even because of its huge running costs. Following a dispute between the owners of the Dominion Theatre and Dave Clarke the show suddenly closed in April 1988 even though there were advance ticket sales for the following six months. Refunds were given.
