Mine would be the hit 80's Dave Clark's "Time" Musical

Saw it 3 times- once with-Cliff Richard in  June of 1986 I was 5 then David Cassidy in summer of 1987 with Stephanie Lawrence and then with David Ian in Spring of 1988

Shame it never toured the UK afterwards like Chess etc-The special effects and the sets were cutting edge stuff and still holds up today

Still have all the merch,  John Napier did soo many West End/Broadway, RSC, +Tour stuff etc  as you know

The guy is a genius-And this Musical needs to be revived!

Children of Eden is another good one,  I remember the adverts for it on TV and listings of it on good old Ceefax, Oracle,  and adverts to buy the cast album etc-Ialso remember when they performd this on TV-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Mx3ocw3ZP8

Another one of mine would be the hit musical Mutiny in the 80's-David Essex, Frank Finlay,  Sinitta,  etc

Yea TIME-needs to be revived no question, Yea the Mutiny Cast Album is really good I agree!

It was 6th/7th CD my dad got  + he got it from-Our Price(Those were the days)

Yea Kiss of the Spider Woman would be a very good oneto bring back to West End, And if so what Theatre would you like it at?

I wouldn't mind  it coming back to the: West End or  UK Tour!

I'd love to see Hadestown back in the UK, the Broadway version is perfection and slightly better than the NT in my opinion. (and it's cheaper not having to fly to New York to see it!) 

I'd also like to see Hedwig and the Angry Inch in London, and The Band's Visit, which I don't think was staged here.

Billy, the musical version of Billy Liar, which I saw at the Drury Lane many years ago. Music/lyrics by John Barry/Don Black. Lovely show, deserves a full revival.

Spring Awakening,Hedwig (the last Broadway version was really well updated with great performers too!) and Kiss Of The Spiderwoman for sure. The original production was amazing.

 

I'd also love to see Aida finally come to the West End (rumoured again that it might come next year, but who knows)
