Brace yourselves as cult classic The Rocky Horror Show does the time warp back into the West End for a limited time only. Featuring creator, writer and original Riff Raff Richard O’Brien as the Narrator, as well as Diana Vickers and Paul Cattermole, the world’s favourite quirky musical opens at London’s Playhouse Theatre in September 2015.
Originally opening in 1973, The Rocky Horror Show has thrilled audiences across the globe, landing on six continents and performing multiple runs on the West End and Broadway. A bizarre tribute to sci-fi and horror b movies, the plot follows newly engaged squares Brad and Janet, who find themselves spending the night in a mysterious castle, surrounded by the colourful Frank N Furter and his man-made hunk Rocky. An adventure they will never forget, Brad and Janet’s loyalties are brought into question as they are plunged into antics involving frocks, fun and frivolity.
The Rocky Horror Show stars David Bedella (Jerry Springer: The Opera) as the infamous Frank N Furter, alongside Ben Forster (Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar) as Brad and Haley Flaherty (Matilda) as Janet. Further cast members include Kristian Lavercombe as Riff Raff, Jayde Westaby as Magenta, Richard Meek as Eddie/Dr Scott, Sophie Linder-Lee as Columbia, Dominic Anderson as Rocky, as well as Will Knights, Ben Kerr, Hannah Malekzad, Rachel Grundy and Andrew Ahern.
Featuring hugely well-known songs such as “Sweet Transvestite”, “Hot Patootie – Bless My Soul”, “Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me” and “Time Warp”, The Rocky Horror Show promises an unforgettable evening that includes outrageous outfits, sing-a-longs and a general rock ‘n’ roll experience. Don’t miss out on your chance to catch O’Brien’s Rocky Horror Show at the Playhouse Theatre before it embarks on a UK tour.
Fans of The Rocky Horror Show will be attending in full-force, complete with outrageous outfits and ready to sing along to the famous songs. Please be aware that this will be unlike any other theatrical experience – and theatre etiquette will go right out of the window! The Rocky Horror Show is absolutely not suitable for children due to strong sexual themes.
