ABOUT THE SHOW
In this cult classic, sweethearts Brad and Janet, stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker and a creepy butler. Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named "Rocky."
The original kitschy rock 'n' roll sci-fi gothic musical is more fun than ever!
"A musical that deals with mutating identity and time warps becomes one of the most mutated, time-warped phenomena in show business."
– The New York Times
