Rocky Horror is undoubtedly a cult classic. Attracting people from far and wide, it has one of the most exceptionally dedicated fan bases. This recent UK tour yet again proves that the show has lost none of its saucy appeal.
With audience participation in bucket-loads it made for a superb evening of entertainment. Norman Pace as Narrator drove the story along hilariously well, coping with the audience quips that flew at him left, right and centre. His excellent comebacks and the odd moment of corpsing added an extra spark to the evening.
The duo of Kristian Lavercombe as Riff Raff and Kay Murphy as Magenta was genius! They delivered stunning vocals, with Lavercombe stealing many a laugh for his uproarious characterisation. Sophie Linder-Lee's Columbia also garnered many a giggle through the night, Dominic Andersen made for a eye-pleasing Rocky and Paul Cattermole enjoyed funny cameos as Eddie and Dr Scott.
Richard Meek and Diana Vickers were perfect as Brad and Janet. Crisp vocals in abundance, they impressed as a fabulous duo. Particular highlights included Touch a Touch a Touch a Touch Me and Superheroes.
Liam Tamne made for a deliciously dirty Frank-N-Furter. With a confident swagger he thrilled as he performed Sweet Transvestite and delivered a beautiful rendition of I'm Going Home.
Half the fun of this production is the audience interaction and it was a superb evening to venture out and see this in full force. Rocky Horror truly is a show not to be missed. Ladies and Gentlemen, grab your corset and high heels, and prepare for an evening of thorough filth and hilarity at the Wolverhampton Grand this week.
