“Its just a jump to the left”, we all know what this means especially when The Rocky Horror Picture show had its premiere showing this week in Melbourne which brought out our local and international celebrities, with a visit from James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan who swapped his 007 tux for a leather jacket.
The talented and extraordinary cast is led by television and theatre star Craig McLachlan in the coveted role of Frank N Furter, alongside musical theatre favourites Christie Whelan Browne as Janet, Tim Maddren as Brad, Kristian Lavercombe as Riff Raff and Erika Heynatz as Magenta. Ashlea Pyke plays Columbia, Eddie and Dr Scott are played by Nicholas Christo, Rocky is Brendan Irving and the Narrator is played by Tony Farrell. Completing the cast are Vincent Hooper, Luigi Lucente, James Maxfield, Meghan O’Shea and Angela Scundi.
The Rocky Horror Show is a true classic and one of theatre’s most endearing and outrageously fun shows. It opened at London’s Royal Court Theatre on June 19, 1973, quickly developing a cult following, and was adapted into the 1975 film The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which has the longest-running release in film history.
