Rocky Horror Show

What is it?

People talk about it sometimes, and reference it often
and yet, I dont know anything about it,
just that it is a show (I think) and older than me (I think)

    WHAT IS IT?!?!?! :eek:

    One of the greatest musicals, films (Rocky Horror Picture Show) and cults ever!

    ...know the Timewarp song? That's from the RHS.

    Think transsexuals, transvestites, gratuitous sex and lots of weird make-up... and you're about 1/2way there :)

    erm..
    r-i-g-h-t-
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    hehe :)

    The storyline is something along the lines of
    Cute and innocent couple (Brad and Janet) get engaged
    Cute and innocent couple's car breaks down one stormy night near large scary mansion
    Cute and innocent couple enter mansion
    Mansion is owned by Frankenfurter (a transsexual from Transsexual, Transylvania) and the siblings Magenta and Riff-Raff.
    Frankenfurter sleeps with and corrupts both Brad and Janet
    Frankenfurter creates 'superhuman' Rocky (blonde and vvv nice body)
    Rocky and Meatloaf sing
    Many people sing - it being a musical
    Not-so-cute and innocent couple sing and dance and have sex
    Riff-Raff and Magenta kill everyone...

    :D

    Isn't "Let Me Entertain You" also from this show? (As covered by Robbie Williams)

    How can you?!

    Actually that's probably true. But hey it's amusing :) and it's more the cult surrounding it than the actual film.

    perfect***day - do not worry. That is simply his her opinion, you don't need someone elses opinions to jutify your own!

    Meaning?

    What I simply meant was there is no need for people to argue over differences of opinion. I have never understood this. We should all respect one another. That is all I meant.

    There is no need to be quite so rude.

    hehehe i thought everyone knew what that is

    Meaning I think perfect***day knows it's only my opinion - we were hardly arguing.

    My mom totaly hates it so when i brought it on vid i thought she was going to hit the roof. She was so mad so im only allowed to watch it when shes not at home. Its not even like i watch it down stairs i watch it in my room but never mind.

    oooh we're trying to convince our drama teacher to let us do Rocky Horror Show for this years school performance, cause we're sick of doing crappy Oliver and stuff. We wanna do something hilarious... hilarious because the dudes will be .....lmao....hahahaha

    She won't let us though. And she won't let us do Bambi either :crying:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    What do you mean "What is it?" :confused: It's one of the best films ever! And one of the best stage musicals ever!
    Yes, the film is shot on a budget, and is cheesy. But it's supposed to be. It lampoons all the 50's Sci-fi B movies, bungs in a whole load of wierd dressing, and cross dressing, camps it all up, and is one of the most bizarre films ever. Watch it and you'll see.
    I went to the show a couple of weeks ago, and loved it. It was fantastic. A group of us went, though I was the only one to dress up, and it was funny trying to explain it to someone who didn't know much about it. By the end of the show he loved it.

    I think you may have a problem putting on a production of Rocky Horror as Richard O'brien doesn't permit amateur productions of Rocky Horror. A production has to be authorised, and feature actors who are members of an actors union (can't remember the name of it). I think it's mentioned in the FAQ on the www.rockyhorror.co.uk website.
    Sorry about that. :(

    rocky horror is way cool! love it!

    i was a virgin before december when i went to see it in bradford, and i'm going for my friend's 18th in leeds in may :cool:

    ahh - fishnets, thong, heels and snakeskin corset, with labcoat to preserve a little modesty while walking through town
    :D

    primark is just the best place ever - cheap lingerie. then add glitter, rips and goth makeup. ;)

    we had our very own rocky when we went, not as nice as the one onstage but still :naughty:

    I can't believe you didn't know what the rocky horror show was
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I recieved a DVD of the Rocky Horror Show today. It's a while since I've seen the movie, and it's as brilliant as I remember. :)
    There were extra features, interviews, etc. Excellent. (ad bit coming up) I got it from CD Wow for £7.99 inc p&p (but it's region 4 - Australia, so you'll need a multi-region player).
