In September 1977 (after the dissolution of Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart), Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones traveled to England to begin rehearsals for their longtime friend Harry Nilsson's stage production of The Point. The show opened in London at the Mermaid Theatre on December 22, 1977. Davy played "Oblio," the hero, and Micky's part as "The Count's Kid" was created specifically so that both Jones and Dolenz could share the stage. An original cast album was released in the United Kingdom by MCA Records in January 1978. The Point closed in London on February 25, 1978.
And now, 29 years later, The Point will arrive on compact disc courtesy of Varese Vintage:
A single from the cast recording was also released by MCA (courtesy of JD at Monkee45s.net):
UPDATE 7/1/16: The Point compact disc is now arriving to customers from Amazon.com and other retailers.
