Since it first opened in London in June 1973 at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show has become the world’s favourite Rock ‘N’ Roll musical, having been performed worldwide for 45 years in more than 30 countries and translated into over 20 languages.
This critically-acclaimed stunning new production is coming to the Teatro, Montecasino, in January 2020 and as we count down the days to this South African favourite returning to the stage, we’ve got the first look as Craig Urbani as he gears up for his role as Frank ‘n Furter.
“Since I played the role of Rocky in 1992, I have been dreaming about playing Frank, and playing it in my head over all these years. So, to finally actually get to put it on its feet and do it for real is a dream come true,” Craig tells us.
The Rocky Horror Show 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 whilst 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. The Rocky Horror Show is a guaranteed party, which famously combines science-fiction, horror, comedy and music while encouraging audience participation meaning, of course, getting dressed in the most outrageous fancy dress.
