Encyclopedia > The Rocky Horror Show

The Rocky Horror Show is a long running stage musical (opening in London initially, on June 19, 1973) that inspired the movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show. It was written by Richard O'Brien, who returned to his native England after growing up in New Zealand. The musical was developed by O'Brien in collaboration with Australian theatre director Jim Sharman, who had already gained extensive experience directing rock musicals with the groundbreaking Australian productions of Hair and Jesus Christ Superstar.

Plot summary

The theatre usherette introduces us to tonight's film: a sci-fi double feature. And so the film begins. Commentary is provided throughout the show by the Narrator, who expands on plot information and acts to drive the story onwards. Sci-fi is an abbreviation for science fiction. ... The double feature, also known as a double bill, was a motion picture industry phenomenon in which theatre managers would exhibit two films for the price of one, supplanting an earlier format in which one feature film and various short subject reels would be shown. ...


Janet and Brad, a young couple, become engaged while attending a friend's wedding. They decide to go visit their university professor, whos class they met in, during the trip their car breaks down and they are forced to seek refuge from the storm in an old mansion house. The inhabitants of the house are highly unconventional: the "sweet transvestite", Frank'N'Furter, his servants (Riff Raff and Magenta, who are brother and sister) and groupie (Columbia).


Frank'N'Furter exhibits his current laboratory specimen to the newcomers: Rocky, who is created by Frank N Furter as a sexual plaything. Upon interruption from Eddie, who is driven insane from Frank N Furter taking half Eddie's brain for use in Rocky and is also Columbia's lover, is then murdered by Frank, the household retires to bed.


During the night, both Brad and Janet experience a sexual awakening at the hands of Frank'N'Furter. As a result, Janet sleeps with Rocky. Eddie's uncle, Dr. Everrett Scott also arrives, seeking him. Frank is revealed as an 'alien'. In the resulting confusion, all parties are drugged by Frank'N'Furter and compelled to perform in his 'floor show', a celebration of hedonism.


The 'floor show' culminates in the murder of Frank, Rocky, and Columbia by Riff Raff and Magenta, who wish to return to their home planet. Blasting off from Earth, they leave behind Brad, Janet and Dr. Scott in a state of bewilderment, but sexually awakened.


Original production

Sharman's success with the original Australian production of Jesus Christ Superstar led to an invitation to direct the first London stage production, and it was during the London run of Superstar that he met O'Brien, who briefly had a role in the show (he played Herod for just one performance). O'Brien played Sharman some of the songs he had written and they began to flesh out the concept for the show; Sharman later brought in fellow Australians Nell Campbell (aka 'Little Nell') and longtime design collaborator Brian Thomson, who had designed both Hair and Superstar. Sharman's theatrical background — his father and grandfather were famous tent-show promoters — influenced the deliberately makeshift look and feel of the original production, which premiered in a small, run-down, 60 seat theatre slated for demolition. The theatre was run by the Royal Court as a project space for new work. The show was voted Best New Musical by London's theatre critics and the production transferred to a theatre on the Kings Road where it ran continuously for three years. Little Nell Campbell (born Laura Elizabeth Campbell, May 24, 1953) is an Australian actress and singer. ...

Kings Road is a major east-west street in Londons Chelsea. ...


Original London cast and production team

A common misconception is that Belinda Sinclair originated the role of Janet because Sinclair is featured on the Original London Cast Recording. Julie Covington was the first to play Janet, but an accident early in the run of the show caused her to be badly injured and she had to leave the production. Covington was replaced by Sinclair.

Broadway production

The Rocky Horror Show originally went on Broadway in 1975 with the Roxy cast from Los Angeles, except for Graham Jarvis who was replaced by William Newman, and Bruce Scott who was replaced by author Richard O'Brien himself. It opened March 10th at the Belasco Theatre. "We did a week of sold-out previews to audiences who loved it," said Kim Milford (Rocky). "Then opening night, the critics sat there in silence and looked at us like we just crawled out from under a rock." The critics trashed the show and it closed after 45 performances. The Rocky Horror Show had a short revival on Broadway from October 2000 to January 2002 and featured Tom Hewitt, rock singers Joan Jett and Sebastian Bach (from October 2001 to January 2002), funny lady Lea DeLaria, and Daphne Rubin-Vega of Rent fame. From October 2001 to January 2002, several guest celebrities played the narrator role normally performed by Dick Cavett, including magicians Penn & Teller, New York Post columnist Cindy Adams, MTV personality Dave Holmes, and talk show host Jerry Springer among others. It is suggested that the revival, like other shows running at the time, closed early because of financial losses during the time after 9/11.

Australian productions

The original Australian production of Rocky premiered in Sydney on 15 April 1974 at the New Arts Cinema, Glebe. It was the third major stage show produced by Harry M. Miller, and like its two predecessors it was a resounding success. It ran for almost two years, and the production and cast included several key personnel who had worked on both Hair and Jesus Christ Superstar, including Reg Livermore, Jim Sharman, Brian Thomson and Harry M. Miller. Opening cast:

  • Dr. Frank-N-Furter: Reg Livermore
  • Janet Weiss: Jane Harders
  • Brad Majors: John Paramor
  • Riff-Raff: Sal Sharah
  • Magenta and Usherette: Kate Fitzpatrick
  • Columbia: Maureen Elkner
  • Eddie and Dr. Scott: David Cameron
  • Rocky Horror: Graham Matters
  • The Narrator: Arthur Dignam

The show was revived in 1981 and was successful enough to continue through most of the decade. Reg Livermore reprised his role of Dr, Frank for the 10th anniversary in 1984, that particular production, however, was a flop. It was revived once again in 1992 (as The New Rocky Horror Show) with a million-dollar stage set and cast full of celebrities, which, like previous productions, continued on tour through most of the decade. Reg Livermore (born ??) is an Australian television personality. ... Kate Fitzpatrick is an Australian television actress, who has appeared on such television series as Something in the Air, Scooter: Secret Agent, All Saints, Boney and Birds in the Bush. ...


Revivals

The play has been revived several times, but is much different now than when it was first presented in 1973. The script that is used in productions today has been changed to be very much like the film adaptation The Rocky Horror Picture Show. For example, all the song titles have been changed to match those in the film, and certain dialogue has also been changed to be like the film. The original script can be found on the net on most Rocky Horror fan made pages. The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a cult comedy musical from 1975. ...


The movie has been much more popular in the United States than the theatrical show, revivals of which are mounted periodically without great success. In other countries the stage show has proved a perennial favourite with theatre audiences, and many successful revivals of the show have been mounted. In some places at the stage show, fans dress up as the characters and shout call-backs at the stage. For example, whenever the character Brad's name is mentioned, the audience shouts "asshole," and similarly shouts "slut" for Janet. Fans also use props at appropriate moments, for example, throwing toast when Frank calls for "a toast," and using water pistols and newspapers during a scene in the rain. Many theatres no longer allow this.[2] This article or section does not adequately cite its references or sources. ... Two pieces of toasted white bread. ... Hip hip horray!

Computer games

The Rocky Horror Show computer game was produced for early 8-bit computers including the Commodore 64, Commodore 128, ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC by the CRL Group PLC in 1985, to mixed reviews. The game involved playing as either Brad or Janet and collecting pieces of the Medusa machine scattered around the castle, in order to free the player's partner from stone and escape the castle before it blasts off. Meanwhile, the other characters in the game could hinder the player's progress by stealing and hiding their clothes and other objects. The Commodore 64 is the best-selling single personal computer model of all time. ...

The Rocky Interactive Horror Show Game was released in March/April 1999 for the PC by On-Line PLC. Similarly to the earlier CRL game, the player plays as Brad or Janet and must rescue their partner from the castle. Unlike the older computer game, its gameplay was more puzzle-oriented, and benefited from the added detail, graphics, and live video sequences that the PC could provide. Despite this, it was criticised for a clumsy user interface and for using two-dimensional graphics, at a time when most games were using 3D.[citation needed]
