Discover a world of colourful characters and unforgettable songs
The characters of this musical are equally as iconic as the songs that encapsulate the story of the young newlyweds, Brad and Janet, who are stranded with their car and seek help at a nearby castle. The castle may not harbour the help they were looking for, but instead houses an array of quirky and weird characters who seduce the newlyweds into their world of music, partying and the creations of alien scientist Dr. Frank N. Furter, a transsexual who introduces the young, innocent couple to his latest creation—a blond robot named Rocky for his personal entertainment. Richard O’Brien’s musical was first staged in 1973 in London and has since become a cult musical of epic proportions. The alien-induced production features a range of unforgettable numbers that have become icons in the music world, for example "Hot Patootie—Bless My Soul" and "Time Warp", which includes a dance that is well known and danced among Rocky fans. The musical number and accompanying dance was, in fact, so popular that the number even reached the Top Ten of the British Single Charts in 1989. This parodic take on 1930s science fiction and horror movies is always worth an entertaining night, so fetch your tickets for The Rocky Horror Show on StubHub and let yourself be Time Warped into the weird world of Dr. Frank N. Furter and his robot Rocky.
The frenzy over this musical continues
What helped establish this musical as the counterculture item it is today was the movie adaptation that followed the release of the stage musical in 1975. A young Susan Sarandon, Tim Curry and Richard O’Brien himself were part of the cast, and the movie is played repeatedly in movie theatres until today, to attract a large cult base who dress up for the occasion and celebrate the diversity and individuality presented in the musical. But apart from the music, seeing the real stage musical should not be missed by any real Rocky fan, and StubHub has all the tickets for The Rocky Horror Show for you.
