Get out those basques, stockings and stilettos guys, the 2019 World Tour of Richard O’ Brien’s Rocky Horror Show is about to hit town (4th to 9th February).
Back in 1973, before an audience of just 63 people, The Rocky Horror Show first saw the light of day – or maybe the dark of night – at the Royal Court’s Theatre Upstairs. It transferred to the West End and, in 1975, it was transformed into a film called ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ which took over $135 million at the Box Office and is still shown in cinemas around the world. Not only that but in an audience poll at the Royal Court a few years ago, The Rocky Horror Show was voted the favourite of all the past productions in the theatre’s illustrious 50 year history.
The stage show has now been seen by more than 30 million theatregoers and it’s still on a roll. That’s why Milton Keynes Theatre is excited to announce the return of the legendary cult classic starring West End star Stephen Webb as Frank-N-Furter, Strictly Come Dancing Champion Joanne Clifton as Janet, A1’s Ben Adams as Brad and Kristian Lavercombe as Riff Raff. World renowned comedian, Dom Joly takes the part of the Narrator. Directed by Christopher Luscombe, the smash hit show features all of the famous musical numbers that have made The Rocky Horror show such a huge hit over the last four decades including Sweet Transvestite, Dammit Janet and of course, the timeless floor-filler The Time Warp.
Partying apart, there is a plot. On their way out and about to celebrate their engagement two buttoned up young lovers, Brad and Janet, get a flat tyre and stumble into the castle of a mad scientist, Dr Frank-N-Furter, who is also in celebratory mood having just created a half-brained sex toy-boy called Rocky. Catapulted dangerously outside of their comfort zone and into a world where normal rules don’t apply, Brad and Janet are drawn into a world of fluid sexual shenanigans, violence and intrigue – all played out through the kinkiest of rock ‘n’ roll musical numbers. Yes, it’s rude but hey, it’s gothically good fun!
