When a small company of jobbing actors set out on the very first production of The Rocky Horror Show at the Royal Court Theatre on the Kings Road, London, in 1973, no one could have realised what a world-wide phenomenon it would become. Initially receiving mixed reviews, the stage show would enjoy a short life, but the subsequent film would steadily build a cult student following, filling hundreds of cinemas on a weekly basis, and gaining huge video sales.
Now, in the 25th anniversary of the making of the infamous movie starring Tim Curry, Richard O'Brien, Susan Sarandon, Meat Loaf and Barry Bostwick, we find out what went on behind the scenes from those who were there. This celebration of Transylvanian proportions brings the true fan completely up to date, interviewing the main stars of stage and screen productions, describing how each evolved, the good times, the squabbles, the tantrums, the jealously and the greed as Rocky Horror made a special piece of history.
