About the Show
Richard O’Brien is the man behind the music and lyrics for the Rocky Horror Show. It originally made it’s debut on a London stage in 1973 and has since been performed in countless theaters around the world. The show is a humorous tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the late 1940s through to the early 1970s, and tells the story of a newly engaged couple getting caught in a storm and coming to the home of a mad transvestite scientist unveiling his new creation, a muscle man named Rocky Horror.
