About The Rocky Horrow Show

It was first performed to an audience of 63 people at the Royal Court’s Theatre Upstairs in 1973. It was an immediate success and transferred to the Chelsea Classic Cinema, before going on to run at the Kings Road Theatre and the Comedy Theatre in the West End. 

Since opening, The Rocky Horror Show has become the longest continuous run of a contemporary musical anywhere in the world, seen by more than 30 million people in over 30 countries.

It tells the story of Brad and his fiancée Janet, two squeaky clean college kids who meet Dr Frank ‘n’ Furter by chance when their car breaks down outside his house while on their way to visit their favourite college professor. It’s an adventure they’ll never forget, with fun, frolics, frocks and frivolity, bursting with timeless songs and outrageous outfits

In 1975 it was transformed into a film called The Rocky Horror Picture Show which took over $135 million at the Box Office and is still shown in cinemas around the world more than 40 years after its premiere, making it the longest-running theatrical release in cinema history.
