Message: I am about to venture back into the world of Rocky Horror after a very long time.. Why back into the world of Rocky Horror. Its like this. As a 30 year old Sloan Ranger in 1973 and a resident of Cheyne Walk, I have some would say, a unique insight into the birth of Rocky Horror. Sorry! forgot to tell you, I used to be a stage lighting engineer at the Royal Court Theater and Shaftsbury Theater. I had had the dubious pleasure of working with the lighting designer of Rocky Horror, a guy by the name of Gerry Jenkins who just kept asking for one last favour.
At the time that Rocky Horror was in rehersals I had been working between the Shaftsbury and the Roal Court. Rocky opened on the 19 June 1973. As many of you know it had only been a six week workshop.
At the time there had been many new rock musicals around the west end, many destined not to make it and as back-stage staff 'Rocky' at its concept appeared to be just such a show.
Suddenly 'Rocky' came to be a hot prospect and moved on to the Chelsea classic. I always think that at the time of 'Rocky' 'Hair' the Musical was going into its 2000 performance, unfortunatle the ceiling fell down on the 20 July 1973 closing the show. To some extent with these events and the word on the street that Rocky was hot, moved the audience to experience the new show in Chelsea.
Later that year I moved to the USA with Rocky just a distant memory. Running into the film in Manhattan in 1975, this being shown as a Schlock-Horror B Movie. These show had been frequented by all that is unholy in Manhattan, especially in 1975 being black, gay, punk or a dropout life had been difficult.
The movie I think provided an outlet for many allternative persuasions. To be 'out' then would have been unaccetable but dressing up for an alternative movie... enough said.
Since then I have seen the Show in Germany,Australia, Japan even in Scotland. In fact last year I watched the show in Majorca Music in English with Spanish dialog.
As I said at the start of this ramble I will venture back, 'venture back in costume', and being an ageing queen who still competes' in body building contests, it should be interesting?
Pictures will be posted. Why nothing from Nottingham Playhouse? all they say is we are thinking about it. Thats Nottingham for you.
Will have to go to Derby, Manachester or wherever.
Regards to all, sorry for the tirade but its been 30years. L.G.

Message: Saw the show at Woking on 8th April and really enjoyed it. Loved the new sets and thought the cast were great (no Suzanne Shaw unfortunately but the understudy was fine). I have to admit I was a bit worried about what David B would be like as Frank but he had an amazing singing voice and did a fab job. He had a sexy twinkle!
Had a hilarious moment on the way out though. A girl who had been enjoying a bit too much alcohol threw her arms around me and said I was gorgeous. She then realised I wasn't her friend but luckily still thought I was gorgeous! She started to chat and said 'I like Rocky with all those muscles don't you?' I replied that actually no, I don't like Rocky but I LOVE Frank.' Her response was 'which one was Frank?' I tried to explain but she still didn't get it. Strange!
Helping Frank with his makeup.
Men in makeup and fishnets! YAY!

Message: It's been a while since I posted a Guest Book message, as I've been so wrapped up following the various threads on the Forums instead. However, I decided to correct that right now, as the beginning of a brand new UK tour of The Rocky Horror Show is finally upon us. By the time everyone gets to read this, I should have already seen the show five times in Brighton. After more than two years without the stage show, I am definitely ready to get shot of those agonising withdrawal symptoms (it's not been easy) and kick off the tour with a bang. Having had the honour of being invited to attend a full run-through rehearsal of the show last week, I can't wait to see the whole thing come together with costumes, props, lights, sets, and a rocking band. It was a thrilling day and a real privilege to be asked to come and see the production as a work-in-progress. This production really looks like it's going to be something special. Christopher Luscombe (the brilliant new director of the show) clearly understands the story, the characters, the B movie origins, and the emotions of Richard's classic script; the new cast are all sensational; and the show itself is going to surprise and delight a lot of people. It's still the Rocky that we all know and love (which was a huge relief) but with added freshness, imagination, and a few special twists and surprises. The TimeWarp Guest Book has been a bit quiet lately (I'm as guilty as anyone else and I apologise), so let's hope that the buzz about the new tour gets people posting and chatting excitedly again. See y'all at the show.
