The Rocky Horror Show

March 6, 2013

I saw the original production of “The Rocky Horror Show” at the Alexandra Theatre in Birmingham when I was a teenager. I love Oliver Thornton‘s “Adam” in “Priscilla Queen of the Desert” and I was looking forward to his “Frank-n-Furter” at the Alexandra Theatre in the 40th Anniversary tour of the “Rocky Horror Show”.

Oliver Thornton was fabulous, as was the rest of the cast in this very well designed and staged colourful production. Rhydian looks great and sings well as Rocky. Shakespearean Actor Philip Franks as the Narrator handled the heckling audience brilliantly.

However, the shining star of this production for me is Ben Forster as Brad. We saw Ben last year playing Jesus in the arena tour of “Jesus Christ Superstar”. Here we see his talent as a stage actor as well as his beautiful singing voice. Ben will go far in British theatre.

What a great night out!
