Rocky Horror show: The ultimate in Rock Musicals

Some exciting news has surfaced for fans of rock musicals in the North West: “Cult classic The Rocky Horror Show on in Blackpool”! The show will run at the Winter Gardens from 26th September to 1st October 2016. For those who don´t know it, the Rocky Horror Show is quite simply the Daddy of rock musicals! Richard O´Brien´s masterpiece premièred in 1973. Since then it has been running more or less continuously in different productions in London, Broadway, and has spawned a successful film version. This show is not for the faint at heart. I won´t spoil the story but suffice to say it features a mad transvestite scientist introducing “Rocky Horror”, his Frankenstein style artificial creation, to the world. It is packed with unforgettable glam rock inspired songs including the perennial favourite “Time Warp” (which you have probably heard before, even if you think you don’t know it). This version is directed by Christopher Luscombe and was given a five star rating by the Telegraph who described it as “fresh, subversive, essential”. I will be booking quickly to avoid disappointment and advise you to do the same. See you in Blackpool in the Autumn!
