2 years ago
The Rocky Horror Show has been entertaining audiences for decades and the reviews for the current UK tour have been amazing.
Legendary musical The Rocky Horror Show is on now at Liverpool Empire and you have until Saturday 21 May to see it.
Marcus Collins met Stephen Webb who plays Frank-N-Furter for a backstage tour of the iconic show that has gained a cult-following across the globe. He delves into the outrageous wardrobe department, sees some of the props and sets that are used in the production and finds out what it’s really like for Stephen to transform into Frank-N-Furter.
Starring Strictly Come Dancing winner Ore Oduba as Brad and directed by Christopher Luscombe, the Rocky Horror Show is a guaranteed party and features timeless classics, including Sweet Transvestite, Damn it Janet, and of course, the pelvic-thrusting, show-stopping Time Warp.
The Rocky Horror Show is the story of two squeaky clean college kids – Brad and his fiancée Janet. When by a twist of fate, their car breaks down outside a creepy mansion whilst on their way to visit their former college professor, they meet the charismatic Dr Frank’n’Furter.
The original production of the show premiered in London way back in 1973, and five decades later it still has audiences on their feet and gripped to the humorous tribute to science fiction and early horror movies.
