Richard O'Brien's


Book, Music and Lyrics by Richard O'Brien

That sweet transvestite and his motley crew did the Time Warp on Broadway in a 25th anniversary revival. Complete with sass from the audience, cascading toilet paper, and an array of other audience participation props, this deliberately kitschy rock 'n' roll sci-fi gothic musical is more fun than ever.
"A socko wacko weirdo rock concert." - WNBC TV
"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
"Campy trash." - Time
"One of the '10 most influential postwar British plays.'" - Guardian UK
The Rocky Horrow Show was first presented on Broadway by Lou Adler at the Belasco Theatre in New York City in March 1975. It was directed by Jim Sharman
