The First Look at FOX’s live performance of The Rocky Horror Picture Show

The original Rocky Horror Picture Show is one of my all time favorite movies. It was unique and quite exciting, even for back in the day. With performances from Tim Curry to Susan Sarandon to Meat Loaf, what’s not to enjoy. Now, we have a live performance with the best group that could do it. From FOX and director Kenny Ortega comes the live reimagining of… The Rocky Horror Picture Show

 

“THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW follows sweethearts Janet (Victoria Justice) and Brad (Ryan McCartan), who stumble upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s (Emmy Award-nominated actress Laverne Cox) bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious alien mad-scientist, is holding an annual, Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of “Rocky Horror” (Staz Nair) – a fit, attractive man created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires. “
