Rocky Horror returns to Sydney
Cult musical The Rocky Horror Show will return to Sydney for a strictly limited season at the Lyric Theatre in April 2015.
First performed at London’s Royal Court theatre in 1973, Rocky Horror soon gained a cult following and was adapted for the screen in 1975, starring Tim Curry in the iconic role of Dr Frank n Furter.
The film went on to have the longest running cinema release in history and Rocky Horror continues to hold a special place in the hearts of theatre lovers and film buffs.
The new Sydney production mounted by producers Howard Panter and John Frost, will see TV and theatre star Craig McLachlan returning to reprise the role of Frank n Furter, a role for which he has been nominated for a Helpmann award.
“We are thrilled to be able to share this sexy new production of The Rocky Horror Show with Sydney audiences,” said John Frost.
“Fans in Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne were so enthusiastic and just about every performance was sold out. Audiences obviously can’t wait to do the 'Time Warp' again with Craig McLachlan, and now that we’ve been able to confirm theatre availability, Sydney theatregoers can give themselves over to absolute pleasure before madness takes its toll.”
