Quote by Dr Frank-N-Furter Rocky Horror Picture Show: “Dont dream it, be it”
Tim Curry: Dr. Frank-N-Furter - A Scientist
The screenplay was written by Sharman and actor Richard O'Brien , who is also a member of the cast. The film is based on the musical stage production The Rocky Horror Show , with music, book, and lyrics by O'Brien. The production is a parody tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the s through to the early s. The story centres on a young engaged couple whose car breaks down in the rain near a castle where they seek a telephone to call for help. The castle or country home is occupied by strangers in elaborate costumes celebrating an annual convention.
A humorous tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the s through to the early s, the musical tells the story of a newly engaged couple getting caught in a storm and coming to the home of a mad transvestite scientist, Dr Frank-N-Furter, unveiling his new creation, a sort of Frankenstein-style monster in the form of an artificially made, fully grown, physically perfect muscle man named Rocky Horror, complete "with blond hair and a tan". The show was produced and directed by Jim Sharman. The original London production of the musical premiered at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs on 19 June after two previews on 16 and 18 June It later moved to several other locations in London and closed on 13 September Its debut in the US in Los Angeles had a successful nine-month run, but its Broadway debut at the Belasco Theatre lasted only three previews and forty-five showings, despite earning one Tony nomination and three Drama Desk nominations. Various international productions have since spanned across six continents as well as West End and Broadway revivals and eight UK tours.
