The highly anticipated production of The Rocky Horror Show lands in Luxembourg this week.
Richard O’Brien’s trashy musical was written as a hobby project by the out of work actor, and ended up becoming a cult hit show and film. The Rocky Horror Show has since been seen by over 20 million spectators around the world, many of whom take an active part in the audience participation that made the show so popular.
An international cast production from the UK comes to Luxembourg as part of a tour of Germany. Local singer and actor Serge Tonnar takes on the role of the Narrator.
Described as an “off-key adult fairy tale”, The Rocky Horror Show pays tribute and pokes gentle fun at the B movies of the 1940s and 50s, while packing in a slew of memorable songs, many of which are familiar even to those who haven’t seen the show, such as ‘The Time Warp’ to which the cast and audience perform a dance routine.
The plot is a deliberately clichéd, weird and wonderful story of the creation of artificial life based on the Frankenstein legend, alien transvestites, the loss of innocence and the discovery of earthly pleasures.
