About Rocky Horror Show

The Rocky Horror Show is a musical composed by Richard O'Brien with lyrics and story.=

The musical is a comical ode to the science fiction and horror B movies from 1930s until early 1960s. It tells the story of an engaged couple who gets stranded in a storm and takes shelter with a mad transvestite scientist, Dr Frank-N-Furter. He unveils his new creation--a Frankenstein-style monster that is artificially made, physically perfect, complete with blond hair and tan skin.

Jim Sharman was the show's producer and director. The musical's first performance in London took place at the Royal Court Theatre (Upstairs) on June 19, 1973. (after two previews on 16 and 18 June 1973). Later, it relocated to a number of additional London locations before shutting down on September 13, 1980. The play had a total of 2,960 performances and was named the Best Musical at the 1973 Evening Standard Theatre Awards. O'Brien and Richard Hartley co-wrote "Time Warp," one of the musical's songs, while Sue Blane created the costumes.

Its US debut in Los Angeles in 1974 enjoyed a great nine-month run, but despite receiving one Tony nomination and three Drama Desk nominations, its 1975 Broadway launch at the Belasco Theatre only lasted three previews and forty-five performances. Since then, numerous foreign performances have taken place on six other continents, along with revivals in the West End and Broadway, as well as eight UK tours. Tim Curry, an actor who played Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the original London production, has a special connection to the musical.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a 1975 movie based on the musical, stars O'Brien as Riff Raff and Curry in a cameo. It boasts the longest runtime in cinematic history. The television movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again was made based on it in 2016. In a BBC Radio 2 listener survey of the "Nation's Number One Essential Musicals," the musical came in ninth place. One of eight UK musicals commemorated on Royal Mail stamps released in February 2011 was The Rocky Horror Show.
