Frank N. Furter, Richard O'Brian's Rocky Horror Show

Rocky Horror Show

From 28 November to 16 December 2017, Richard O'Brien's Rocky Horror Show can be seen again in Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier. It promises to be a party, especially for fans with experience of ritual: for example, during the song Sweet Transvestite, the savvy audience calls out in Frank's extended pause before the word "anticipation": "Say it!". Or in the scene when Brad and Janet ride the lift to the laboratory of Dr. Frank N. Furter, the audience calls out: "Show me something green and sexy!". And when the Time Warp is performed, everyone gets to their feet and dances until they drop.

Trash, sex, Rock'n'Roll

The story is above a nice courting couple, Janet Weiss and Brad Major, who find themselves in the castle of the strange Dr. Frank N. Furter after their car breaks down. There, the properly raised young people are unwittingly involved in the craziest situations and find themselves in all manner of confusions. The scurrilous story is transported through hits such as The Time Warp and Sweet Transvestite.

Since the premiere at the Royal Court Theatre in London in 1973, over 20 million people have experienced the extravagant fairy tale for adults. Ultimately, it was the successful film version The Rocky Horror Picture Show that elevated the bizarre story to cult status.
