Show promising fun and naughty moments
RICHARD O’Brien’s critically-acclaimed new production of The Rocky Horror Show is now back by public demand and returns for a 12 month UK tour featuring Blue Singer and Hollyoaks actor Duncan James as Dr. Frank-N-Furter.
Duncan James said: “Frank is such an iconic role, it’s an honour to be able to play him and a role that I have always wanted to do. I’m so excited to be touring with such a fun and vibrant show, and to be working with this fantastic cast.”
The legendary musical extravaganza is embarking on an extensive tour of the UK, playing the Liverpool Empire Theatre from Monday, April 29 to Saturday, May 4.
Ready to thrill audiences with fun and naughty moments, The Rocky Horror Show is the boldest bash of them all. But be warned, this show has rude parts!
Richard O’Brien wrote The Rocky Horror Show in 1973. The musical is a tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the late 1940s through to the early 1970s.
The show was first presented at the Royal Court Theatre in London on June 19, 1973 and moved to a number of different theatres. It had a total of 2,960 performances and received the 1973 Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Musical.
Tim Curry was the first person to play the role of Dr Frank-N-Furter in the original London production of the show.
A BBC Radio 2 listener poll ranked the musical eight in the Nation’s Number One Essential Musicals.
