The Rocky Horror Show
2012–13 UK tour
In December 2012, a new production of The Rocky Horror Show began a year-long UK tour to celebrate the show’s 40th anniversary.
Christopher Luscombe had returned to direct the production, which starred Oliver Thornton as Frank-N-Furter, Ben Forster as Brad Majors (until February 2013), Roxanne Pallett as Janet Weiss (until May 2013) & Rhydian Roberts as Rocky (until March 2013). Unlike recent previous productions, the tour did not feature interchanging Narrators with Guests instead Philip Franks took over the role.
