Richard O’Brien’s Rocky Horror Show is back at the King’s Theatre Glasgow! Celebrating 40 years of stage success, this show is not one to miss!  The show is a mixture of powerful rock anthems, killer vocals and laugh out loud comedy.

The Rocky Horror Show

Its film adaptation in 1975 has given even more people around the world a chance to enjoy Rocky Horror's peculiar delights, but its roots lie firmly in the theatre. The audience gets a real chance to not only experience the production live but, in some cases, to interact with it.

Oliver Thornton gives a fantastic portrayal of Frank-N-Furter.  He plays his character with absolute enthusiasm and ease.  Thornton is without doubt the star of the show and would even give the legendary Tim Curry a run for his money!

Reality TV winner Ben Forster plays Brad brilliantly.  Actor Dani Harmer portrays both Janet’s gentle and wild sides incredibly well.  Both characters are a delight to watch and interact very well with one another as they unravel from geek chic couple to slinking about the stage in stilettos. Christopher Luscombe does a great job of narrating one of the most heckled shows in theatre.  Playing along well with the crowds shouts and getting some extra laughs with some improvisation.

With a very impressive and detailed set, an excellent live rock band and a very strong cast this show lives up to the expectations of all.  It is a faithful reproduction of the well-loved original.

The show features such classics as Sweet Transvestite and the pelvic thrusting Time Warp!  This show will have you singing along from beginning to end!  Do not miss out!
