Review: Rocky Horror Show in Aylesbury
WITH stockings, hot pants, sex and catchy music the Rocky Horror Show musical cannot fail but grab the audiences' attention.
It is running this week at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre with a whole new cast to celebrate its 40th anniversary.
And even last night- a Monday- in the audience there were men dressed in stockings and high heels and ladies in hot pants- as is the tradition at this musical.
It is just great fun and as outrageous today as it was when it started. The cast in this production is incredibly strong- all have brilliant voices and work well together.
Oliver Thornton is mesmerising as the scandalous Frank-N-Further, and takes on this incredible role with ease.
Equally as brilliant are Ben Forster as Brad, Roxanne Pallett as Janet and Rhydian as Rocky.
Philip Franks was the narrator, and again as per tradition with this show, handled the audience's heckling superbly.
The rest of the cast were all just as strong and the singing was almost faultless.
There was a great atmosphere in the theatre and almost everyone jumped to their feet for Time Warp.
For those who haven't experience the spectacle of The Rocky Horror Show it is almost like a ritual for a lot of the audience members.
Fans of the show dress up provocatively and heckle the narrator- but only at the right moments.
It follows the story of the very innocent Brad and Janet as they come across a strange house in the country.
They then go through a very practical sex education from the inhabitants of the house- Transexual Transylvania. The second half falls in chaos and seems slightly more sinister than the first.
But the show never fails to impress with its exuberance and brilliant score, and in this production a very talented cast.
The Rocky Horror Show is at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre from February 4- 9 at 8pm with Friday and Saturday performances at 5.30 and 8.30pm. Tickets range from £10-£35 from www.atgtickets.com/aylesbury or call 0844 8717644.
