There isn’t a show that has ever reached the level of cult following like 1973’s The Rocky Horror Show.
Brad (Ben Forster) and Janet (Haley Flaherty) are on their way to see their old professor when their car breaks down. They head to a nearby castle to use the phone, but find themselves in over their heads when they meet transvestite Frank N. Furter (David Bedella).
This show has it all. The rock ‘n’ roll music is impossible to resist and will be stuck in your head for weeks to come. There is an incredible amount of comedy, which even causes the actors to stifle laughs. And, there’s sexual appeal.
In aid of Amnesty International, this version was broadcast throughout Europe and includes many top UK personalities as the show’s narrators.
Final say: I will always do the time warp. ★★★★★
