About the Play:

The Rocky Horror Show is a full-length musical, dark comedy by Richard O'Brien. A newly-engaged couple find themselves seeking shelter at a mysterious old castle on a dark and stormy night, where they encounter a crazy transvestite scientist, his "perfect" creation Rocky, and an assortment of other crazy creatures.

The Rocky Horror Show is a modern classic musical tribute of the golden age of Sci-Fi "B Movies." Young, naive couple Brad and Janet are celebrating their engagement when their car breaks down in the most unlikely of places. They soon find themselves at a mysterious castle in the middle of night, where a mad scientist Dr. Frank N Furter (who's also a "Sweet Tranvsestite") is about to unveil his greatest creation, a Charles Atlas inspired Frankenstein's monster. This rock and roll musical comedy features many hit songs, including the notorious "Time Warp". The Rocky Horror Show celebrates diversity, accessibility and artistic freedom.

The Rocky Horror Show premiered in 1973 at the Royal Court Theatre (Upstairs) in London before moving to several other locations in London and closing in 1980. The show became both a critical and commercial success and became the "it" thing to do in London during that time. Due to its high success in London, the show came to the U.S. and premiered at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles in 1974, and on Broadway at the Belasco Theatre in New York City in 1975.
